HTML5 keeps being mentioned. Does the iPad / Safari use html5?
HTML 5 is great. I think Safari and many browser already support it. The problem is that HTML 5 has not even been finalized and adopted as a standard yet. You cant expect the internet as a whole to drop technology that 90% of internet users have no problem with and redesign their sites just because something new will be out soon.
Maybe giving up on Flash but not on Silverlight.
