True and flash is no longer being supported on mobile devices & tablets.
But the reason is simple being YouTube or Hulu with humongous no of files?
And completely redo the whole website to comply with HTML5? All that has to be coded.
Still in spite of the growing popularity of HTML5 standard, most web developers and designers are reluctant to migrate to the new markup language, maybe because of the absence of a complete HTML5 specification or lack of practical information on HTML5 сoding.
