    Adobe recently released Adobe Edge ... their tool for simplifying development of  Flash like animations in HTML5 / CSS / Jquery aninmation ... their attempt to make peace with iOS .. mobile world ...

    With the look and feel similar to Adobe flash developer tools .. it should be a easy switch for  Flash developers out there ...  though the animations dont feel that smooth ... and the code looks quite heavy ( just like Dreamweaver ) ...

    Anyway a interesting new tool .. May be this is how the next version of Expression Blend  will work  ...  to align developers to Windows 8  development ...

    They are very smooth for me. I suppose because I have good GPU and IE9 likes my GPU. It is quite awesome actually. I wonder what this means. Should be really drop everything and use HTML5? If MS is able to make a layer that can runs WPF/XAML and XNA on HTML5, that would be very interesting.

    ========================

    Remember to change to IE9 Doc Mode, the site set it to IE8 Document Mode, arrrggg.

    @Dovella: I have my doubts how much Adobe will be able to achieve w.r.t. mobile platforms ... especially with IE 9 on Mango phones .. which still does not support many so called html5 features  like ... Form Elements, Sockets, Touch Events,full CSS3 etc .. many of which are already supported in Webkit based iOS browsers...  IE10 is remedying the situation ... once IE10 is complete, I hope MS manages to quickly port it to Windows Phone ...

    @xgamer:

    Ie9 runs. So even without all the ie10 features, it still do wonders.

    @magicalclick: Yes I have already tested the Adobe Edge samples on Desktop IE9 (though did not test Mango phone)... comments in my earlier post was w.r.t.  Dovella's link which indicated that Adobe Edge team are going to test the Edge HTML output with WP7 .... 

    What I was trying suggest that though current simple mainly Jquery based samples may run properly on IE9, if Adobe creates features in Edge which requires true html5 capabilities they may not work  or may work in degraded manner ... till IE10 on mobile

    By the way thanks for Ie9 related tip ...

    Man how can one still do such kind js code generation while not solving any actual problems of web development? I don't need a animation tool that spits out a js file(I can do that myself). I want a complete solution that can abstract away things missing or being badly designed in the javascript language.

    I could do without choice of library if the tools offer would be really nice. Some little declarative animation framework, some knockout like bindings, some razor syntax templates that render both server and client side, and view models written server side and then passed to the client(including commands, compiled to js using expression tree magic or something...), THATs what I'm expecting from the HTML5 tooling story. =)
