    Its important to know that HMTL5 etc only support a limited set of Flash features and not all browsers. There is a reason why the Flash-to-HTML5 converter only support the old Flash 8 AS2, no effects etc. I guess mobile market and Apple limited support is a reason but I guess people don’t want a lot of animations on a slow mobile?
