Opera has entered the Adobe Flash vs HTML5 debate, siding with Apple stating that “flash as a video container makes very little sense”.

Phillip Grønvold, Product Analyst at Opera gave an interview with TechRadar this week and shared his thoughts on the debate.

“Today’s internet content is dependant on Flash, if you remove Flash you do not have today’s internet. We are trying to give the best internet experience for our users therefore we need Flash – there is no way to beat around that bush.”

“But at Opera we say that the future of the web is open web standards and Flash is not an open web standards technology” continued Grønvold.

Grønvold believes that Adobe will need to change, and embrace HTML5 technologies or face more embracing war-of-words like we have seen between Adobe and Apple’s Steve Jobs.
