Adobe Edge Animate, formerly known as simply Adobe Edge,[2] is a web development tool developed by Adobe Systems that uses HTML5, JavaScript, and CSS3 functionality. It is now a part of Adobe Edge suite, and is available as a free 30-day trial download from Adobe Creative Cloud.[3][4] As of November 2015, Edge Animate is no longer being actively developed.[5] Subsequently, all download links are redirected towards Adobe Animate (formerly Adobe Flash Professional).


On August 1, 2011, Adobe announced the development of Edge as a new multimedia authoring tool to succeed the Flash platform for browser-delivered content, and released a preview version of the software. Edge builds applications based on a foundation of HTML5, JavaScript, jQuery and CSS3. These applications are compatible with HTML5-compatible browsers.

On November 9, 2011, Adobe announced that it will no longer develop Flash for mobile browsers and is planning on developing new products with more open technologies and standards like HTML5, JavaScript, and CSS3. Flash and Adobe AIR will continue to support development of native apps (which do not run in a browser) on mobile platforms.[6] However, the latest iteration of Flash CC can publish in non SWF formats that will play on Apple proprietary mobile platforms such as iPad and iPhone

On November 2015, Adobe announces that Edge Animate is no longer being actively developed.
