Adobe shows off prototype tool for HTML5 animation

Adobe gives a sneak peek of its prototype HTML5 tool, codenamed "Edge."

Adobe uploaded a preview of its new (and perhaps overdue) prototype tool for HTML5 animation, codenamed "Adobe Edge" (not to be confused with Adobe's monthly newsletter) Monday.

Perhaps Adobe is looking to get into the HTML5 race, especially since Apple has made it pretty clear that they're not going to bend on the issue. HTML5 is the (still-in-development) next major revision of HTML, and has often been touted by Apple as an alternative to Adobe's Flash plug-in.

Adobe Fellow Mark Anders gives a five-minute demonstration of the new prototype -- notably not an actual tool yet. Anders notes the importance of being able to coordinate the movements of elements in HTML5, and states that Edge was designed with this importance in mind.

Edge is pretty basic thus far, with a few panes (Timeline, Layers, Properties) situated around a Stage area. In the Stage area you can see what you're designing and interact with it in the same way users will be able to interact with it on the Web.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
