Steve Jobs has three main reasons (well, at least three main reasons he talks about) for preferring HTML5 over Flash and therefore banishing Flash from his iOS devices. The first is that Flash creates security problems…and OK, he does have a point there and Adobe has been working hard to try to close all the various exploits and security holes found in Flash but there is a lot of work still to do. The second is that Flash is a resource hog, which for me is often a mixed bag. Some Flash videos play fine on my machine, while others will suck my processor dry and then some, so he may have a point. with this complaint as well.
Who won in the head to head performance battle, HTML5 or Flash? Watch the test after the jump.
