HTML pack for Dreamweaver http://bit.ly/9AXrmA Adobe is moving quickly demoing HTML 5 support in Dreamweaver at Google I/O Conference.
It’s in Adobe labs http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/html5pack/ ready for experimenting now.
Demonstrated on stage:
First, Kevin [Lynch] is showing the HTML5 pack for Dreamweaver. It augments Dreamweaver with code hinting, an updated WebKit for the live view, the fun multiscreen demo that Adobe has been sharing for awhile, and starter layouts for HTML5.
Then we see Kevin use a new prototype tool that allows him to create a rich ad (of course! 🙂 using CSS3 transforms and animations. This is a design tool folks. Think timelines, layers, and more.
I think this is great news for Adobe and HTML5 regardless of what might happen with Flash (which is going to be with us for quite a while).
Not so wonderful in implication is the comment:
Once people figure out HTML5 ads are much harder to block than flash or simple images, it’s going to take off.
Darn. Flash advertising is easy to block and blocked, the web is a better place, generally.
