W3C's Role In the Growth of a Proprietary Web

smallpaul Re:oh please (228 comments)

The web without all this proprietary stuff would be so boring it would be unreal.

Really? Why. The vast majority of what Flash can do is standardized in SVG, SMIL and many other standards that Adobe and Microsoft studiously ignore. What do you do on the Web that is so exciting that it cannot be accomplished with SVG and SMIL? Of course there are things that Flash can do but SVG cannot and vice versa. But in general, all of the major Web app categories would be served just fine with SVG et. al.
