Flash fans also argue that, with 99% of browsers supporting the technology, they have a much larger audience reach. Developers that prefer HTML5 also argue that because Flash code is compiled and that there is no way for a search engine to properly spider the content. That means all the great content in your flash banner, animation, or video adds nothing to your site’s search engine optimization (SEO).
There has been much speculation (and quite a few misconceptions) about the future of Flash in the media with the introduction of Flash to HTML5 conversion tools,  Steve Jobs / Apple rejection of Flash, and Flash support being dropped for mobile browsers (although many of the most popular mobile *apps* are actually Flash-based). This blog post aims to clarify some of these issues. It also compares two tools for converting Flash to HTML.
