Chris Black: ‘Flash Outperforms HTML5 on Mobile Devices’

John Nack’s headline for the same benchmark: “Flash Runs Faster, More Efficiently Than HTML5 on Mobile”.

It’s a good demonstration, but I’d have a warmer feeling in my heart if they were more specific about what’s being benchmarked. It’s the HTML5 canvas element that they’re showing Flash Player outperforming, not the entirety of HTML5. How about video playback, for example?
