Short Bytes: It was just a matter of time. Adobe has finally accepted that Flash’s existence is doing more harm than good to the web. Now, Adobe has decided to rebrand its Flash Professional CC as Adobe Animate CC and it’ll be Adobe’s premier Web animation tool for developing HTML5 content.
Now, Adobe has decided to rebrand its Flash Professional CC as Adobe Animate CC. If you are still not convinced, read this statement by Adobe in its blog: “Animate CC will be Adobe’s premier Web animation tool for developing HTML5 content.”
Accepting Flash’s defeat, in its blog post, Adobe said that more than over a third of all content made in Flash Professional today uses HTML5. However, the Animate CC app will still support Flash output and other animation and video format.

Adobe writes in the blog post, “when the release becomes available in January, it will be listed as “Adobe Animate CC” in the Creative Cloud desktop application. When you install or update Animate CC, it will be found on your computer as Adobe Animate CC 2015, not Adobe Flash CC 2015.”
Over the past few years, HTML5 and open web standards have become dominant. On the other hand, Flash has been on the receiving end due to its numerous zero-day flaws and other security loopholes.
