If you’ve got an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad, one thing is for sure - you are not getting Flash. Not now, not ever. Smokescreen is a new open-source project that aims at getting Flash-based elements onto iDevices without using a plugin.
The second group that will benefit are iDevice users. Although I do use the word ‘benefit’ loosely. As a user you will be able to view and interact with Flash content without the need for any additional software (like a Flash plugin). On the other hand, who actually enjoys banner ads telling us to download a new set of smileys any way?
Although in principal I like the idea, but I think the majority of us have gotten used to idea of not having flash. What are we really missing out on? Will this slow down the proliferation of HTML5? What do you guys think? Let us know in the comments.
