Apple's HTML5 'standards' hype debunked

Anonymous Coward

This is not a facetious question

What is HTML 5 bringing to the party that will displace flash, apart from a video tag? Flash was around before youtube, it has not always been about playing videos, and I suspect its uses will evolve into more than that.

When Stevey boy wonder (it's what he likes me to call him) says HTML5 will replace flash, is he just talking video?

I really do not understand this. I haven't had time to look into what will actually be there in HTML 5, so maybe there's a whole host of additional features, but I can't see it providing the functionality as easily as that I can currently get from silverlight (and I assume flash).
