Flash owner trials alternative with new design tool

Adobe, the company which created Flash, has released a free trial for a design tool which allows users to create web content with HTML5 - broadly accepted to be the technology which will usurp the widely used Flash standard.

The program, called Edge, is designed to allow the creation of content which will function across all of the platforms which Flash currently supports, in addition to iOS.

Apple notoriously refuses to allow support for the tool on its system, claiming that the program creates security vulnerabilities. HTML5 suffers from no such problems and is supported by Apple.

Edge will also support CSS3 and Javascript.

The Edge preview is available for free now and will enable the testing of various animation and graphical tools, but has no other functionality. The full version of the program is due for release in 2012.
