Adobe Releases Edge Preview 1: Open Web Folks Rejoice


For some time now there have been rumors that Adobe would be releasing a new tool to create rich web animation without the need for the Flash plugin. Yesterday Adobe released a very early stage of their upcoming “Edge” software and we’ve had a chance to play around with it.  On the surface Edge looks a lot like Flash.  It has a timeline, a stage, and a number of panels to refine animations. While the interface is very reminiscent of Flash its output is what makes it special.  Edge generates 100% HTML / Javascript / CSS which means everything can rendered on any modern device (even iOS devices).

Now what does all this mean to you?  It means cost effective rich web experiences that work on everything are just around the corner.  It is expected that a production version of Edge will be released with CS6 sometime in 2012.

If you want to try Edge out for yourself you can download it from Adobe Labs.
