HTML5 vs Flash Drawing

HTML5 vs Flash Drawing JavaScript vs ActionScript 3 { William Malone }

As our relationship with HTML5 progresses and grows deeper, I’m excited to see direct comparisons between ‘old and busted’ and ‘the new hotness’ on a one-to-one scale.

William Malone literally holds our hand as he walks us through the replication of an icon in both JavaScript (via canvas) and Flash (via ActionScript 3). I find it really interesting to compare both the differences as well as the similarities found within the common ground known as ECMAScript.
