HTML 5 has long been touted at the Flash killer. It still hasen't happend, and wont likely happen for some time. But a new HTML 5 authoring tool released last Friday (already the top grossing app in the Mac App Store) is looking to make the changing of guard faster.
Hype, developed by two ex Apple engineers, takes the often times laborious, and confusing task of coding HTML 5, and turns it into a friendlier WYSIWYG process.

To Adobeís credit, theyíve been more active lately in trying to address these issues.- Jonathan Deutsch told the Start Up Foundry
