If Steve Jobs claims that the web needs to be cleaned of Flash this proprietary plague to justify Apple 'control freak' politics, it's only fair to admit that the success of iPhones has modified the way we surf the web.
However considering its overall presence on the interweb, the lack of Flash support would have been a real handicap without any alternative. No need to say that HTML 5 kinda comes as a savior, being an open-standard supported by all the web actors. www.html5rocks.com helps us to see with more clarity the large possibilities the new version of HTML does already offer. Thanks Google!
