Released yesterday, Adobe hopes to bring the same easy usability of Flash development tools to HTML5 with its new Adode Edge Preview application. The user interface is reminiscent of Flash and After Effects with a dedicated timeline for "jumping" and "scrubbing". Scripting consists of jQuery and Adobe's scripts, while animation uses both scripts and CSS.
The beta version is still in its early phases with limited support for HTML and SVG content in the meantime. However, Adobe hopes to add more features such as richer graphics and interactivity for the final release, slated for launch sometime in 2012. For more on this story, click here.
