Flash vs. Canvas

Ein Vergleich von Canvas/JavaScript und Flash aufgrund verschiedener Kriterien. Die Schlussfolgerung:
Canvas is the future of 2D (and possibly 3D) graphics on the web. Sure, it has a few shortcomings, but as time passes, it will only get better.
You can write it with the same language (JavaScript) as the rest of the interaction logic on your web page. It's fast and getting faster. Once a few competent frameworks appear, it will be just as easy to use as Flash for a huge variety of tasks. And once the iPad ships, Flash will become a liability.
My advice for web developers: if something on your site CAN be done in Canvas, it SHOULD be done in canvas.
