Sorry if this issue had been discussed but it just came to my attention that a Flash widget I created is now having graphic rendering issues in FP 11.1 and above. I did search for a fix or for anything related to this and found bug reports but no solution. Some recommend updating Video drivers

That's the most important point IMO. You can at least technically do high quality Flash like work with HTML5. It can still be challenging, but it'll only get easier over time. That Nike site BTW, doesn't run well even on the newest iMac we have in the office (less than 2 months old), and it

Oh! That's right, I would totally love game controller support! I wonder if it has something to do with a lack of system APIs on certain systems, to put an abstraction around (OSX, iOS, Android, etc.). Kevin N. On 2/22/12 3:50 PM, Henrik Andersson wrote: Oh and, there is a curious lack of

I do think it'll get easier, I sincerely HOPE, so since it takes 3 - 4 times longer now to do what I can currently do with Flash. Well, you have a point - but once the basics are covered (video, audio, DOM, CSS3, and Canvas), and reasonably compatibly implemented between all the browsers
