As the Apple vs. Adobe battle over Flash support on iDevices reaches a fever pitch of Protestants-vs.-Catholics-in-Northern-Ireland proportions, it's crucial to step back and say, "Well, what about performance issues? Does Flash run faster/better than, say, HTML5?"
Chaize's tests, in turn, demonstrated marked performance increases across the board on his Nexus One when testing the embedded Flash Player 10.1 versus HTML5 or JS. The real surprise came when he switched to his iPhone — not a "hey, the Flash test worked!" surprise, because it didn't (duh), but how BADLY the HTML5 test performed, even compared to the Nexus One.
