@surreal5335 FYI : ActionScript and Javascript are 2 completely different things and aren’t based on each other …

If you dont believe me, google it. I advise you do hw before making a statement, when your wrong it makes you look foolish.

what kind of fee, did you pay for flash player, oh you are taking about Adobe Flash Program? Flex SDK went open source, so what fees ?

HTML5 and Justin Bieber fans – ‘Think Different’ :D

HTML5 maybe will be nicer in 2-3 years, BUT…until then I am paying all my taxes and my kid’s education by working as Flash/Flex developer.

Try create some “HTML5 Zinga game”, or perhaps a “video chat”…

The main difference being that JavaScript is a real programming language and PART of the internet designed to work WITH the internet. It is indexable, portable, open source, and has infinite possibility to grow. Flash is a monopoly built on an ugly language emulating Java syntax. It is nowhere near as elegant as JavaScript. It is also compiled into these closed tiny boxes that are impenetrable by search engines or other machines. It goes against the spirit of sharing ideas. Ugh.

“It is also compiled into these closed tiny boxes that are impenetrable by search engines or other machines. ” Just like canvas? 50% browser support,half of the performance. Know your stuff…..

That’s the argument.
Like c++ is old and gross and most of (conterporary) games are made in it.

I make HTML5 Games and I came up with pretty much the same conclusion, you can’t run html5 on every device and expect it to perform the same as other devices capable of running html5. The new Motorola Android and Galaxy S2 have dual core processors and have proved to be sufficient to run almost anything in html5 just as smooth as flash.

The irony I am experiencing throughout this html5 vs flash concept is that everyone is looking at html5 just because newer devices can run it like a pc can.

@28inchUK That is only half correct. You can link items within the canvas. Like an object in an html5 game can be clicked and it will take you to another html app. This allows you to open individual apps for every function within a game. Why? cuz a dual core processor can run 5 tiny apps better than a sincle core can run 1 app with those 5 apps resources. This is why AMD is winning the processor game, they focus on individual core efficiency and thus run it better in multiple threads.

@harveylegs how is it old and gross when programs that give you shortcuts or easy programing are made in javascript? not all of them but for the most part on the internet, flash is mainly used for games that barely play on a 10 year old computer. Cell phones have just recently surpassed that conquest in our present day in age. Therefore, things that normally got programmed in javascript (.exe’s) for the pc are now being done for mobile devices. This gives the web browser flexibility unlike flash

HTML, CSS and JavaScript are tools for making web pages. Rich Internet Apps didn’t even exist until Flash gave developers the API to blur the line between web and application. Flash pushed the web into it’s current state. The open source tools have lagged, but now their universalness has won them out…

@MaryjanesJunction There’s no point at all in compiling javascript into an .exe. What the hell would that accomplish? Javascript is a web programming language, not an application language.


Date: December 29, 2011 |

@GPow69 are you serious? There are tons of java script programs that compile an .exe with your finished work. Gamemaker HTML5 by yoyo games does.. Haven’t you played a flash or java game that you could also download to play when you don’t have access to the internet?

@UtubeCanEatMyDick I develop in javascript, i am no part of apple or any other company you mentioned. I think what you should be saying is that java programmers cost more than flash programmers. Why? because when java came out, tons of .exe’s were compiled with java script to make computer programs. It wasn’t structured for web based applications. That is why Flash got such a good start when it came out, because it allowed ppl to do more with their websites and email.


Date: December 29, 2011 |

@MaryjanesJunction Oh right, I guess I was thinking of web design related things such as image sliders and such. I’m still back in the days where that’s all JS was used for, it’s evolved much more now I see :p


Date: December 29, 2011 |

How old is flash? Java is old too but it was designed for creating computer programs, not web based applications. I remember when flash was a new thing, the games were pretty basic and the ones that werent required a souped up computer. Java has been used for web based apps in the past but not as often, its because java code is more complex therefore costs more to hire code writers, not to mention higher tuition to get the degree required to even get the job.

@MaryjanesJunction This is not java, it’s javascript, something completely different. Javascript is ridiculously easy to code compared to both java and actionscript according to my own personal experiences.

HTML5 this pitiful similarity Actionscript 2


Date: January 20, 2012 |

Java was designed from the ground up to run in embedded devices and Java has only been around since the 90’s, please do a search on the history of Java. For the last 20 years Java has been used for server and client side Web programming.
“higher tuition to get the degree required ”
Most computer science curses use Java as a teaching language.
I am sorry Flash is on its way out, THANK GOD
ps learn about Java, javascript, html 5 and don’t look back

I like actionscript3, very efficient coding, better OOP support than Javascript. And flash player 10 can use GPU for 3D rendering which kicks ass. Javascript is only a feasible option in recent years with iphone and other modern browsers catching up. It’s also helped a lot that MS nuked IE6, thank god. For a web game I’d still choose flash, but nowadays if required to do some fancy UI I’d pick JS+JQuary.
