On August 1, 2011, Adobe announced the development of
Edge as a new multimedia authoring tool to succeed the Flash platform for browser-delivered content, and released a preview
version of the software. Edge builds applications based on a foundation of HTML5, Javascript, and CSS3. These applications
are compatible with iOS, Windows Phone 7 and other HTML5-compatible browsers.
On November 9, 2011, Adobe announced that it will no longer develop Flash for mobile browsers and is planning on
developing new products with more open technologies and standards like HTML5, JavaScript, and CSS3. Flash and Adobe
AIR will continue to support development of native apps (which do not run in a browser) on mobile platforms. [2]
