"Adobe has just launched a preview version of ‘Adobe Edge' which allows web developers to create animations using HTML5, and CSS as opposed to Flash. With Apple's long time hatred of Adobe's Flash product, they began steering the world into a Flash-less frame of mind, one where HTML5 rules over animated content."
This is either a reaction to the Apple-Flash dust up over the last year, or just a natural progression of Adobe as they continue to update web tools. What ever the reason, its a good thing in my book. I think Flash will be around for a long time, but I certainly will be glad when more sites utilize HTML5 instead of it. As it is now, less than half of browsers utilize HTML5 so there is a long way to go. You can find out more at the Adobe Labs page, but this is a welcome step.
