Chapter 17. The Future of SVG > SVG and Macromedia Flash

SVG and Macromedia Flash

For many people reading this book, this is the $64,000 dollar question: What impact does SVG have on Flash? For a few, the impact of the impending competition between SVG and Flash will be measured in many millions of dollars rather than in tens of thousands. For smaller players, making the right choice might make the difference to how well, if at all, their graphics design career progresses.

In several earlier sections in this chapter, I have touched on comparisons of SVG and Flash—but how do I view the overall picture? Will the well-established Flash crowd out the young pretender, SVG? Will the open-source, W3C standard SVG dethrone Flash? Or will both succeed, with a huge decline in bitmap graphics on the Web? Or will Flash and SVG carve out separate niches on the Web?
