Adobe backs off on Flash for mobile browsers

About-face for Adobe as company backs of Flash for mobile browsers By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' Adobe says it will pull Flash, its software for Web video and software, from the Web browsers of mobile devices. Flash will still work on mobile apps and on computers' Web browsers.

It's a win for Apple Inc., which has famously banned Flash from working on the iPhone and the iPad. Adobe Systems Inc., though, says the about-face is about listening to what customers want.

In a blog post Wednesday, Adobe vice president Danny Winokur said that the company will increase investment in HTML5. That's the latest version of the programming standard that websites are built on.

It was less than two months ago that Winokur told The Associated Press that Adobe was equally focused on both Flash and HTML5.
