There are a lot of sites at the moment which are making sure that their systems and their foundations are future proof. As time moves on and we see software making massive leaps in its ability to crack and hack into networks – and even accounts of users just by the modification of a simple element on a website, we are also seeing companies look at new ways to keep people out of their private information.
For a long time Flash was the only tool kit that was usable to create exciting, interesting looking web sites and content while Web 2.0 was still in its infancy. Now we are seeing a battle – Flash vs. HTML5 – which one will be victorious? Only time will tell.
Because of how Flash was designed it has a few flaws that are very easy for hackers to find their way around allowing them access to information and data that sites and companies are doing their best to keep safe. HTML5 has been built to directly work alongside the existing structure, and is much more secure because of this when it comes to coding games and creating dynamic content for web sites. HTML5 is much more stable too because it is not simply attached and plugged into the architecture of the site like Flash. It is a solid foundation upon which designers and programmers can create the next generation of internet games.
When the history books look back at the battle of Flash vs. HTML5, it will not be seen as simply a new piece of software usurping an existing one, but as the next logical step forward in the future of the internet itself.
