Flash is a vector animation software and HTML5 is a formatting language that’s used to structure web content. So, what’s the difference between these two and which would be best to use when building a website? I have a confession here – I don’t know. Although I’m online all the time and have put together several websites using templates, I’m not really sure what the difference is between the two. I can talk tecchie when I need to, but I’m no programmer. When I need to choose between the two, I use a great little infographic.
I just need to read through the infographic and think about how the information in it applies to the website I want to build and by the time I get to the end, I know which to use. This is a really useful tool to talk you through all the basics of both Flash and HTML5 without needing to know any of the technical details. As long as you have some idea of what you want your website to look like and what you want to use it for, you should be able to use this to come to the right decision on Flash or HTML5. You really don’t need to know much about them, you just need to make sure that you choose the right one for your website and this infographic makes that a sure-fire thing.
