“…looks uncertain” I think you meant to say “looks more certain than ever” based on browser-fragmented-HTML5/Canvas support and the now known limited interactive abilities of HTML5. The browser fragmentation problem (greater browser base will need IE9) and years-slow upgrade rate of newer browsers by the Web populace will pull the HTML5 adoption rate down to a crawl. 🙂
Remember the recent Google API Blog announcement where Google states it will be supporting Flash over HTML5 due to its many limitations. I expect more video warehouses to drop notions of using HTML5 over Flash especially when Flash Player 10.1 hits full force on more mobile and tablet devices in the coming months.

Anyone remember Adobe Premiere 5.0? Was out sometime in the late 90’s. I remember doing keyframe animations in that like Flash. I believe it pre-dated Flash by like 5 years or so. I would say that was the father of Flash. I think Adobe still makes it, but it is mainly a video editor.( 2 years and 3897 days ago )
Thanks for the quick history of Flash. Great stuff! One correction – Flash creator Jon Gay’s name is spelled without the “h”, as in Jonathan.
Keep the great info coming.( 2 years and 3897 days ago )
I guess you don’t use pure actionscript.( 2 years and 3897 days ago )
@RazorX: Look at the new Nissan Leaf site (http://www.nissanusa.com/leaf-electric-car/index), a nice use of SVG and JS. Expect more sites like this to pop up in the future. As far as your HTML5 mentions, I didn’t talk about HTML5 as a challenger to Flash, but SVG, JS, and CSS3, which are here and have decent support across non-IE (not including IE9) browsers.
@Ron: Thanks for the correction!
@vic: No, I don’t. That approach has nothing to do with the old-school Flash creative process.( 2 years and 3897 days ago )
You omitted beta versions, which is fine, but I’d like to shed some light on the beta version for Flash CS3, which was “Flash 9: Public Alpha”.
It was basically Flash 8 with support for ActionScript 3, but there were some tricks that it allowed that aren’t possible anymore, such as having multiple classes in one AS file. Its user interface was also much snappier than the one introduced in CS3.( 2 years and 3896 days ago )
nice list, thanks for sharing.( 2 years and 3867 days ago )
Wow! This is such a fun article. I love looking back and seeing all the intense differences and how far adobe and technology itself has come!( 2 years and 3730 days ago )
You forget the Adobe Flash CS6 and Flash CC versions.( 2 years and 2737 days ago )
I started with Flash 5, and am currently using CS3. Haven’t felt the need to upgrade any further, really.( 2 years and 3897 days ago )
