Three HTML5 animation tools: Adobe Edge, Sencha Animator, Tumult Hype

HTML5 represents a significant move forward in Web development because it can provide those features by using the client system's browser , processor and memory to handle most of the heavy lifting. Previously, the limitations of older browsers and prior versions of HTML meant that either the server would have to do much of the processing, or the browser would need a plug-in or add-on to access the dynamic content.
