Online marketing websites http://WebReDesignMiami.com andhttp://PervasivePersuasion.com before it attest to the fact that our Miami web designboutique has for years promoted the benefits of W3C standards compliance and practiced what we preached. So naturally, we were pleased that by making clean HTML5 and CSS3 a key component of being “iPad Ready", Apple was forcing the issue. But practically, we do not expect our web design clients and their user base to abandon proprietary plugins like Flash or FLV media overnight. So our approach with VA4Most is to support Flash for what's now, support HTML5 video and audio for what's next, and facilitate the transition from one to the other.
As we explain at VA4Most.WebReDesignMiami.com, our freeware may not be the first open/proprietary HTML5/Flash video/audio media embedding alternative. It is, however, the first of its kind to pass all seven tests of “Web 3.0 Readiness". This means, among other things, that web pages serving up video or audio can leverage VA4Most to qualify as “iPad Ready" today with no changes needed when browsers like Internet Explorer 9 add native HTML5 video and audio functionality tomorrow.
