Over the last few weeks we have closely followed the HTML5 vs Flash debate. Obviously we have some stake in this because we promote a charting library that works in both environments. This means that if you talk to our tech team they curse about both technologies, not just one.
Anyway kidding aside we are starting to see for a number of reasons the technical arguments put out by Steve Jobs and then argued about excessively are getting thin and tiresome. Today we found what we think is a mortal wound quote to many who promote the HTML5 always better argument courtesy of Google itself in regards to Chrome (a WebKit based browser like Safari).
Read in place (without our snarky visual treatment) or see the capture here.
Google: Scold your too logical and transparent programmers for destroying this juicy HTML5 > Flash meme's credibility and get busy scrubbing this page.
Adobe: Please send us a few copies of CS5 since you are in a happy mood right now.
Everyone else: Either back to work or get your flame on if now you don't believe the Chromimum engineers!

P.S. Because we build software that work in both HTML5 and Flash, the argument to us is moot (in the charting space at least). You see we sell to both sides.
