A while back we argued why the iPhone does not need Flash due to the capabilities of HTML5. There has been a quiet movement away from Flash on the Internet. A few notable examples include YouTube, Vimeo, and even a test by CBS.com. You can now add the nonprofit TED to the mix. What is TED?
TED is a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design.
Chris Anderson from TED tweeted the following yesterday:
Excited about this. Non-flash version of http://ted.com is now live for iphone. Videos, comments, ratings. Hurrah!
This comes as awesome news for those that watch videos on TED–you can now do so on your iPhone. What other sites can we expect to drift away from Flash and move to HTML5?
