Enterprise Geeks Podcast – Battle Royale Part II: HTML5 vs Browser Plug-Ins


Will the battle of HTML5 vs. Browser Plug-Ins be like this:

Or More Like This:

This week we welcome guest co-host Dan McWeeney filling in for Ed. Ed is out of the office because his wife just gave birth to their first child. Since Dan works for Adobe and works in the Adobe Flash/Flex world, we thought it would be the perfect podcast to dive into the hot topic of HTML5 verses Browser Plug-Ins (like Adobe Flash and Microsoft Silverlight).

There has been a lot of debate lately (sparked largely by Apple and their refusal to have the Adobe Flash Plug-in on the iPhone/iPad) about exactly what the future role of Browser Plug-Ins will be given the advances that the next version of the HTML specification promises to bring. In this podcast both Dan and I provide our thoughts on the topic.

Dearest eGheads, we need your show ideas. If you have questions, suggestions, or topic ideas for future episodes, give us a shout here. Enjoy!

    Great episode on HTML5, guys. I have to mention that in the podcast, Dan’s volume was really low. I could hear Thomas loud and clear. Had to keep turning the volume up and down according to who was talking.
