It's become somewhat fashionable of late to refer to HTML5 and the web stack as a "Flash killer". The Flash/Flex community, understandably, has not suffered this kind of talk quietly. The ongoing absence of Flash from Apple's wildly popular portable devices has only fueled the fire. Openness, stability, ubiquity, consistency, and security are all thrown around like the discs of Tron.
