Now You Can Use Beats Music With HTML5 In Safari For Mac
If you are a music addict and can’t stay away from it then Beats Music is the right subscribe. As a subscriber you know that Beats Music service can only give you amazing music if you have Flash up and running. If you are like me and despise Flash and want to use the amazing service of streaming music without the installation of Adobe’s plug-in, then there’s a good news for you. A new Safari extension called BeatsMe allows the subscriber to use the Beats Music Web player using HTML5 instead of Flash.
HTML5 is the new face of the Web as it is more effective and efficient solution than Flash. Chris Aljoudi, the developer of BeatsMe, shares his views that the extension was a result of his dissatisfied stemming from understanding that the Beats Music Web player uses the Flash standard. The extension is totally free as you might have guessed and gives longer and better battery life as an added bonus.
Flash is more powerful and demands more resources in comparison to HTML5. But HTML5 has now become a standard affair for the amazing video streaming king, YouTube. iMac users are not concerned with battery when using Beats Music service with Flash. However, MacBook users are deprived of this freedom. BeatsMe, the HTML5 based Web player, eliminates the need for installation of Flash on your notebook and saves the important battery power for MacBook users.
Almost a year back, Apple had acquired Beats Electronics for a sum of $3 billion, and there have been quite a few hardware releases overseen by the Cupertino company since then. Beats Music, the amazing HTML5 based Web player, was also a part of this deal.
There is a battle of the technologies going on between Apple and Flash, which was triggered when Steve Jobs was in command. Despite the war, Beats Music still hangs about in the area which is painted red for the Cupertino giant due to its Flash requirements. We are imagining Beats Music to get a huge make over and overhaul at WWDC, and yes hopefully the music streaming service won’t require Flash afterwards.
As we reported earlier, the days of Flash are already numbered. More and more companies are shifting to HTML5 for their web services. Mozilla ditched Flash in favor of HTML5 for its browser Firefox. Youtube also followed suit. The reason behind them ditching Flash is that it is very insecure. There are number of exploits found in Flash which are used by hackers to perform malicious activities.
