Submission + - Scribd switches to HTML5 (

drfreak writes: "This story from OSNews describes Scribd, a site for uploading and reading documents, switching from Flash to HTML5. The major reason for their decision was that HTML5 now supports all the major points of their previous functionality and so they saw no point in using Flash any more. The big improvement in the rollout is that documents are now first-class citizens of HTML and no longer need to sit in a Flash "Window". Check out this demo to see it in action."
