There are many Flash developers out there who are feeling pretty threatened at the moment with Apple and android not supporting Flash’s .swf files on their mobile device platforms. Conversion tools such as Swiffy from Google to convert existing  .swf files to HTML 5 have VERY limited capability for making this conversion except with the simplest Flash content.

With the creation of new Flash like content in mind Adobe have released a beta version of Edge, a software interface to author Flash style animations in the HTML 5 format. You can download a preview version. Today’s Ars Technica’s blog article adds much to the debate with its 51 reader comments and 169 tweets further extending the scope for those interested.
