If you’ve been following the saga of Facebook’s native iPad app, you already know that yes, it does exist and according to reports circulating on Monday from a former developer, it’s been “feature complete” since May. So what’s the holdup? The social network may be using it as leverage to cozy up to Apple.
There are already plenty of choices when it comes to consuming Twitter on the iPad, including the company’s own official universal iOS app. But apparently they’re trying to cover all the bases, with a new HTML5 version of Twitter.com now starting to roll out to users.
Although it may appear that Adobe is stubbornly holding firm to its commitment to its Flash technology, in reality the company has been quietly slipping HTML5 features into its Creative Suite products -- and now they’ve introduced a public preview for a tool dedicated to creating HTML5 for web designers.
Now that Apple has drawn a line in the side by integrating Twitter inside iOS 5 and further alienating Facebook, it appears that The House That Zuckerberg Built may be planning to take on Cupertino on another front -- with HTML5-based web apps intended to circumvent the iPhone maker’s hold on iOS.
After Adobe ditched GoLive as their primary web development software in 2008, Dreamweaver has settled nicely into the rest of the Creative Suite. With CS5.5, Adobe brings the industry-leading web authoring and editing software another leap forward with enhanced support for CSS3, HTML5 and much more.
Most of us take for granted the machinations going on behind the scenes of our favorite technology, and nowhere is that more true than in the seemingly mundane task of surfing web pages with a browser. Sure, you might know that certain browsers are more forward thinking than others when it comes to new standards such as HTML5, but what does it all mean for you?
If you work in web development, you’re likely well-versed in CSS3, the latest and greatest standard that’s all the rage with modern websites and the browsers we use to view them. The rest of us may have heard the buzz about CSS3 -- but do you know what it is, how it works and why it matters? Read on to find out.
Android users got a treat this week with the release of Mobile Firefox, only a week after Mozilla unleashed the desktop version of Firefox 4 to the world. Available now on Android Marketplace, Mobile Firefox curiously skips Adobe Flash support in favor of HTML5.
Flash content is slowly being driven away by advancements in HTML 5 and CSS 3 (insert "Hallelujah" fanfare here). Unfortunately, Flash is still a neccessity to use certain websites. YouTube, Facebook and Vimeo are all offenders, and until the aformentioned new methods of web design are fully implemented, we'll have to accept Flash is still here to stay.
But there's a safe workaround that can keep Flash from overtaking your computer's memory and crashing during every instance. We'll show you how to avoid some of these crashes by disabling Flash in the Safari browser.
Adobe may have given up on getting native Flash onto Apple’s iOS products (for now), but that doesn’t mean they haven’t continued searching for a back door onto the wildly popular devices. Their latest tactic is an Adobe Labs project codenamed “Wallaby,” which converts Flash into iOS-friendly HTML5.
