At Adobe, we believe that the open flow of creativity, ideas, and information should be limited only by the imagination. Innovation thrives when people are free to choose the technologies that enable them to openly express themselves and access information where and when they want.
Openness is at Adobe's core. Our first technology was an open standard that liberated publishing from proprietary printing systems, and soon afterward our PDF technology eliminated barriers to sharing documents across platforms.
We believe open markets that allow developers, publishers, and consumers to make their own choices about how they create, distribute, and access content are essential to progress. That's why we actively support technologies like HTML4, HTML5, CSS, and H.264, in addition to our own Adobe® Flash® technology, which enables the delivery of content to hundreds of millions of people, regardless of platform or browser.
We also collaborate with other organizations to offer more choices for delivering and accessing content. In 2009, in partnership with Google, Research In Motion, and dozens of other companies, we formed the Open Screen Project, a coalition committed to making web experiences seamlessly available on any mobile device.
We are proud of what we have accomplished with Flash and continue to evolve its capabilities to offer developers, publishers, and consumers more choices for delivering and accessing content.
As the web and mobile devices facilitate the free exchange of ideas like never before, we stand at the leading edge of an amazing revolution. We remain certain that open markets are the only way forward.
