For some companies, change is not so easy. Case in point: Adobe, which last week doubled down its efforts on Flash, releasing Flash Player 11, Air 3, and ramping up its 3-D and HD support—even as many critics argue the industry is shifting away from Flash and toward HTML5.
Today Adobe is launching a public preview of Edge, its tool for web designers that allows moving, interactive graphics on a website using HTML5, not Flash. Adobe tells Fast Company why it's the tip of the iceberg.
