Adobe has Confirmed that Android Chrome does not Support Flash

Adobe recently said that the latest Google Chrome in Android version does not support Flash content anymore. Adobe pointed out that though they are not intended to cooperate with Google to develop Flash-compatible Chrome, it will continue to support the Flash content in the existing Android default browser.

Adobe Flash product manager Bill Howard said: “Google has launched the Chrome beta for Android and exactly as we had announced last November that Adobe will no longer develop Flash player for mobile browsers, and that’s why the Android Chrome beta won’t support Flash content anymore.”

For many years Adobe has failed to fully release the power of Flash in the mobile market. Although it is compatible with Android mobile phones, not in other systems. Due to the fact that Apple iOS does not support Flash, plus all the difficulties Adobe has encountered when introducing the Flash to other new equipments, this plugin fails to extend the glory as its desktop version once did in mobile market.

All these setbacks had forced Adobe to cease the development of mobile Flash player last year. The company announced that it will stop developing Flash player plugin and will no longer support the new platforms. Adobe also admitted HTML5 will be the future standard for creating rich mobile Internet experience.

New iPad – Something You can See, Something You can not

While the whole world is expecting iPad 3’s release on Mar 07th, 2012, they are not disappointed, and actually, people are more kind of surprised because it is New iPad, officially the 3rd-generation of iPad, but just not iPad 3, sounds like a word puzzle, I know!

In New iPad, what you can see is the splendid and superior display effect, it makes a new way to see everything like never before: four times more pixels than iPad 2, razor-sharp text, richer colors, lifelike and detailed details.

What you can not see is the advanced technology behind the scenes, which Apple called it Retina display. The Retina display on the new iPad features a 2048-by-1536 resolution, 44 percent greater color saturation, and an astounding 3.1 million pixels — in the same 9.7-inch space. That’s four times the number of pixels in iPad 2 and a million more than an HDTV.

To achieve this crystal clear display effect, Apple engineers have made a breakthrough technology to separate the pixels from signals, which will not cause the crossover of the two, and therefore, the picture quality does not have to be sacrificed.

As usual, you can see millions of iBooks, photos, emails and videos in a variety of formats on New iPad, to be specific, the New iPad supports the following audio and video formats:

Audio Formats Supported HE-AAC (V1 and V2), AAC (8 to 320 Kbps), Protected AAC (from iTunes Store), MP3 (8 to 320 Kbps), MP3 VBR, Audible (formats 2, 3, and 4, Audible Enhanced Audio, AAX, and AAX+), Apple Lossless, AIFF, and WAV
Video Formats Supported H.264 video up to 1080p, 30 frames per second, High Profile level 4.1 with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats; MPEG-4 video up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Simple Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps per channel, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats; Motion JPEG (M-JPEG) up to 35 Mbps, 1280 by 720 pixels, 30 frames per second, audio in ulaw, PCM stereo audio in .avi file format

 

And unsurprisingly, you can not see Flash content on the New iPad either. However, we do have method to make Flash playable on it using a Flash SWF to iPad Converter.

Besides that, you can get to know other alternative ways to see Flash on the New iPad by reading this guide & tips.

The Gloomy Future of Flash even after Steve Jobs’ Death

Although Adobe flash previously announced flash was widely used in 85% of the mainstream websites, 75% of the network videos and 70% of online games, Apple ex-CEO Steve Jobs decidedly banned it in all the Apple devices and pointed out all the flash weaknesses in an open letter published in April 2010.

Steve Jobs mainly expounded several flash disadvantages in the open letter: poor safety, listed as one of the worst safety records 2009 by Symantec Corporation; No. 1 culprit that will cause Mac computer crash; no mobile edition, which causes extra consumption of power when using portable devices like mobile phone to visit flash video sites; in addition, the main operation habit of flash is mouse customization, which will have a large number of flash sites rewritten in a multi-touch operation mode.

Together with criticism comes along with Jobs’ own solution. HTML 5 is recommended this time due to it’s open source standard, patents control free unlike flash. The most important, HTML 5 is already supported by YouTube and Netflex and has adopted by many mobile equipments as well in the form of hardware decoding.

It was criticized a lot when Jobs decides to ban the Flash applications on Apple. From Microsoft, people are used to compromise to those giant and powerful software which have a great share of market, sacrificing many new system features just to keep the compatibility with the last generation, and considering it as the successful marketing strategy and open attitude. Therefore, although many developers admit what Jobs said about Flash is almost true, not malicious slander, it’s still an honor for other mobile equipment manufacturers to make Flash compatible with their own devices.

This phenomenon is more obvious outside of US. Many mobile phones and tablets using Android OS always put extra emphasis on how fast they can visit Flash sites and how many Flash contents and games you can browse, however, the most important battery life and system stability are kind of neglected.

So far, Android seems to have a bigger market due to its zero-difficult access, however, Jobs, a brave man with predominant market vision, has cleared the obstacles for interactive developers, and therefore promote the popularization of HTML 5 in advance, even if after his death. That’s the most valuable lesson that Jobs has given and that’s the difference between “successful” and “outstanding”.
