“FluidHtml is a text-based markup language (like HTML) that lets you dynamically generate Flash content. This is an extraordinarily powerful idea. It means that anyone can build highly animated websites, ads, media players and 3D animations quickly and easily.”
FluidHTML looks to be an innovative concept and may address current issues related to Flash content on the web. However, I believe web designers/developers who currently use HTML/CSS might find this much more attractive than Flash designers/developers.
I really like the concept of offering an extensible API and opening it up to developers, but is this going to be a viable markup language 5 years from now or is it just a phase. As ActionScript libraries that support browser-like functionality improve and as Google and Yahoo’s search engine’s begin to recognize the text within Flash files, does FluidHTML really fix anything that isn’t already steadily improving.
I believe FluidHTML does have potential however, I am not sure if Flash designers/developers will buy into the concept. Check out the introductory video below on FluidHTML. I’d love to hear how you guys feel about FluidHTML after viewing the video. Would you consider using it?
