Its not everyday that someone gets a chance to prove new technology inferior to what is already available, but it seems today might just be one of those days. This report was posted by Adobe blog, and it tells us that in test, Flash outperforms the latest HTML5 on mobile phones. This does not come as a surprise to me since devices have now been optimized for such technology and HTML5 is still just beginning to flex its muscles.
The results are as followed:
HTML5 Canvas on iPhone 4: 22fps
HTML5 Canvas on Nexus One: 40fps
Flash Player 10.1 on Nexus One: 57fps
The remote did not end there. It went on to say that battery life was 50 percent better with Flash than HTML5, which shows that Flash might still just be the best for our Droids till HTML5 catches up.
What do you think of these results? I want to hear what your thoughts are.
