Windows 8 Tablets, to Support Flash?

Written on September 20, 2011 by Japhet Writ

If tablets running on Windows 8 will be a hit, would a Flash support be essential?

After Microsoft’s previous announcement that the Internet Explorer browser in Windows 8’s Metro interface wouldn’t support plug-ins, Adobe stated that it expects tablets and PCs running the said OS to support Flash “just fine.”

The latter also added on its Adobe Flash Platform Blog that the operating system would support rich web-based games and premium videos. However, Microsoft stated that it worked hard to let Metro rely on older technologies as little as possible. Thus, they concentrated on the latest web technology, the HTML 5.

That said, Adobe pointed out that users will still be able to access Flash content via Windows desktop interface rather than the Metro. Hence, people using the standard computer to browse the Internet are unlikely to be affected. However, viewing Flash content is not going to be easy on tablets that take advantage of the Metro interface. As such, Adobe hopes to get around this problem through its AIR platform — as it does with current tablets based on Android, iOS and BlackBerry tablet OS.

Firefox Gets HTML 5 Video Update

Written on December 22, 2010 by Japhet Writ

While it's admirable that Mozilla is sticking to its guns for a long-term vision, those wanting to use Firefox H.264 could be disappointed – if it wasn't for Microsoft.

The future video standards in the web, particularly in HTML 5, are not totally united. Though many browsers supports H.264, it is not used by Mozilla due to its potential patent fees. Simply put, Mozilla Firefox does not support what could be the most popular form of HTML 5 video. This can mean disappointment among potential users of Mozilla Firefox H.264. Good thing there is Microsoft. Microsoft surprisingly created a plug-in for Firefox that allows H.264 playback on Windows 7 hardware. If you’re a user of Windows 7 that comes with Firefox 3.6 or  the latest you can get the plug-in via this download.

Written on September 08, 2010 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

Let your eyes see the sound as Firefox 4 Beta is now out with a new audio API. Experience music in a completely different way. It's time to give thanks to HTML 5!

Mozilla is rolling out a few new golden parachute with their newest release of the Firefox 4 Beta. The main feature of which is the new audio API. This new audio API enables you to “visualize sound” with the help of HTML 5 <audio> and <video> tags. As posted on Mozilla’s blog, it permits developers to read and write raw audio data within the browser to present sound information in a different way. Simply put, a user can experience music in Firefox as a rapidly scrolling string of raw-data numbers, audio wave visualization, filtered sound stream, EQ sound spectrum, abstract 3D animation and lots more. And if you’re a Windows user, you can expect a better graphics performance as Firefox takes advantage of the built-in DirectX 10 graphics hardware. The new Firefox 4 Beta is now available for free download.

The video below is a quick demo of how the new audio features works.

Happy 2nd Birthday to Google Chrome!

After ten years of existence, a new bolder Chrome is unleashed.

Time flies so fast. It’s hard to believe that it has been two years since the Chrome browser first showed up on web. During that time, Chrome undoubtedly took over the 7.5% of the browser market all over the world. It was obvious that Internet Explorer and Firefox took the 60.4% and the 22.9% of market share. But that is 10 years we’re talking, and Opera holds a little less than 2.4%. Impressive performance for Chrome.

Now on its second year, Google has established a stable foundation for Chrome 6. Making itself known as “The Modern Browser”. The Chrome 6 are gifted with lots of improvements but still focused on the Speed and simplicity.

Like the summer release, the version is tagging along the Adobe Flash built in. With the top notch HTML 5, it is simply the browser we need.

With the predominance of HTML 5, we are trying hard not to imagine the cyber world not growing under the wings of Chrome.
