The company has just released Wallaby, an experimental Flash-to-HTML 5 converter. The tool allows users to easily convert their Flash files into HTML 5 – all they have to do is drag and drop the .fla files into the tool and that’s it. Adobe is looking for feedback from developers and designers to see how the HTML 5 code turns out. A smart move for Adobe, since Flash content developers haven’t been able to easily port their content over to iOS and Apple refuses to let Flash take a step onto their iOS devices. Is Adobe ready to throw in the towel for Flash? Unlikely, since they believe that Flash or HTML 5 can co-exist peacefully, but if Flash ever goes extinct, at least Wallaby will give them a chance to stick around in the online multimedia content world.
