Another Blow for Flash: Pandora Drops Flash for HTML 5 | The Mac Observer

Internet streaming music service Pandora announced on Tuesday that it is phasing out Flash in favor of HTML 5. The change means users won’t have to rely on the Flash plug-in in their Web browser to listen to the service’s music offerings, and the company claims switching to HTML 5 has improved overall performance, too.

“The front-end technology has been rebuilt in HTML 5 and together with a host of other improvements results in a much faster experience,” the Pandora Web site stated.

The HTML 5 version of Pandora includes a redesigned user interface, more robust search options, quick access to playback controls, one-click access to details about the current track, social interaction features, and more.
