Adobe spends considerable money trying to make us believe that Flash is an indispensable part of the web. But like a friend said on Twitter, this Nexus demo video shows why Flash is not worth it in any mobile device.
He is right. It's not only the battery consumption, but the incessant zooming and scrolling and the loading times. Why would I like to look at a Flash-based website on a tiny screen? Especially when I avoid them on my desktop computer in the first place.
So here's the question: Beyond YouTube, which is already available as dedicated apps in all mobile phones, and other Flash-based movie playback, which will be soon replaced by HTML5 embedding, when was the last time you thought "OH, I NEED FLASH TO RUN THIS MUST-SEE SITE!"? Unless you want to play inane Flash-based games like Farmville and enjoy Flash-based ads in your browser, what does Flash really bring to the web today?
Yes, exactly my point.
