Adobe Promises “The Best Tools In The World” for HTML5

So you were scared Adobe was that ugly best dominating the internet world from their Flash-based throne. Perhaps you even thought that they called the Feds to start an investigation against Apple, the rebel who fights for a HTML5 world made of standard compliant houses and javascript flowers.

You were wrong, Adobe is the good guy. You know, that kind of guy that promises the best tools in the world for HTML5. Or at least, that’s what Adobe CTO Lynch told TechCrunch at today’s Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco.

“How is Adobe going to react to HTML5?

I wouldn’t say reacting to HTML5. We see whatever people are using to express themselves. … We’re going to make great tooling for HTML5. We’re going to make the best tools in the world for HTML 5.

It’s not about HTML 5 vs Flash. They’re mutually beneficial. The more important question is the freedom of choice on the web.”

Imagine this: my name is Jose and I’m a mexican dude who gives chili to anyone, as long as they eat it with my forks and the way I want. Hey, but I give it to anyone - don’t forget this. Then, one day, some guy called Fernando comes along, and tells people that my chili is bad and that everyone should eat his stuff, which is better and doesn’t hurt at all.

I’m so pissed off I call the cops and ask them to look into this guy, but it seems like they can’t do anything about it. I’ll never give up. So, I start telling a new story: Fernando’s food is good, but mine is everywhere and if I want - I can make the best stuff too.

I am Adobe.
