Adobe Flash is NOT Open

“But at Opera we say that the future of the web is open web standards and Flash is not an open web standards technology.

Flash does have its purposes and will have its purposes, the same as [Microsoft’s] Silverlight and others, especially for dynamic content.

But flash as a video container makes very little sense for CPU, WiFi battery usage etcetera – you can cook an egg on [devices] once you start running Flash on them and there’s a reason for that.”

— Opera product analyst Phillip Grønvold, quoted on MacRumors
