Ajax is one of 53 companies chosen by VentureBeat to launch at the DEMO Spring 2011 event taking place this week in Palm Desert, Calif. After our selection, the companies pay a fee to present. Our coverage of them remains objective.
Ajax announced that it is launching Cloud9, an online service for developing software, at the Demo 2011 Spring conference today.
The service is built on HTML5, the latest version of the standard language for Web pages that’s widely seen as replacing Adobe’s Flash technology for Web interactivity. Many video sites today use Flash to display and run their video content. Firefox browser creator Mozilla had a similar idea for an online development environment called SkyWriter — but they actually ended up combining their service with Ajax’s Cloud9. Mozilla developer Kevin Dangoor said Cloud9 is available on more browsers, so it made sense for the company to work with Ajax.
