Adobe Edge, now available for free to download until October. At that point it will go on sale. So what is it? Well it is a similar program to Flash, just not as powerful. It is HTML5 though so I have a feeling this is the direction Adobe is going. My guess is that this and either dreamweaver or flash will merge..similar to what happened with Flex. Here is a table that shows where Edge fits into Adobe’s software development process:
|Product||Sample use cases||Supported technologies|
|Adobe Flash® Professional||Immersive interactive experiences, mobile applications, gaming, premium video, advertising||ActionScript, Flash Player, AIR for desktop and mobile|
|Adobe Flash® Builder||ich Internet Applications (RIAs) and mobile applications||Professional ActionScript IDE, Flex, Flash Player, AIR for desktop and mobile|
The platform interface looks very similar to Flash. So this looks like it will be very easy to learn if you know Flash and HTML.
