The way it has always happened...supply and demand. If demand for Flash dries up, people will stop using it, right?
No one is forcing providers to use Flash. They are using it because it is giving them something HTML5 is not. If HTML5 is really as superior as you believe, then it stands to reason that providers will flock to it on their own. For the same reason they flocked to Flash in the first place.
Using browsers to force people to stop using something simply because you don't like the current standard is obnoxious and wrong IMO.
Keep up with what exactly? Android does EVERYTHING that Apple does and more. The reverse is not true.
Seems to me it is the other way around. The Android browser will display everything the iOS browser does.
Its not always about supply and demand though (albeit sometimes it is), but its also not about products that we as consumers see physically, there are a lot of hidden reasons and agendas out there that are transparent to the consumers that are the real force in why things happen in the tech world.
And lets be honest, would Android even exist if Apple hadn't released an iPhone? Sure, we might have had smart phones eventually but would it be called Android? Would it be as great and intuitive as it is now? Sure, NOW Android is better than iOS, but Android only exist because of iOS. Someone (Apple) came out with a product and it got popular, other companies (Google) took notice and needed to compete, thus came Android.
Its not always about supply and demand, wanting to compete and have a part of that market is also a factory.
And be honest with yourself, Apple has pushed for a lot of technological changes in the last 10 years and a lot of good has come of it (Android for one) and not only in the smarphone industry but across the board.
