HTML5 is the future of rich interfaces

I was waiting to see what came of the Silverlight announcement a couple days ago.  This article lays it all out.  I think the battle between Silverlight, Flash and JavaFX has just been called on account of HTML5.

 

Fans roast Microsoft for Silverlight demotion • The Register

 

Both Muglia and Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer – speaking at last week’s Professional Developers’ Conference (PDC) – have made it clear: HTML5 is now considered the future for building rich interfaces for web-connected devices.

The original article that sparked the outcry during last week’s Microsoft Professional Developers Conference (PDC) said:

“Silverlight will continue to be a cross-platform solution, working on a variety of operating system/browser platforms, going forward,” [Muglia] said. “But HTML is the only true cross platform solution for everything, including [Apple’s] iOS platform.”

Muglia promised on Monday that Microsoft will continue to invest in Silverlight and “enable developers to build great apps and experiences with it in the future”. It’s just that Microsoft’s commitment has shifted.
