Uh Oh, Adobe: Porn Industry Prepping to Ditch Flash

When the porn industry gets behind a tech, it tends to be a good sign. When it deserts a tech? Yeah, that's a bad sign.

So it's not great news for Adobe when the founder of Digital Playground, one of the biggest adult studios in the US, states in no uncertain terms in an interview with Conceivably Tech that he hates Flash and will ditch it as soon as all major browsers support HTML5.

Mobile browsers run HTML 5 very well. Flash brings everything to a crawl and has an impact on battery life. With HTML 5, there is no reason to show our content in Flash. We are waiting for browsers to catch up. As soon as they are ready, we will move everything to HTML 5.

So essentially, as soon as Internet Explorer gets around to fully supporting HTML5, we'll see at least one major porn studio ditching Flash. And we know where the porn industry goes, the mainstream entertainment industry tends to follow. [Conceivably Tech via Slashdot]
