Even though still not fully supported by all major Internet browsers, the new HTML5 has some really good benefits which worth considering switch your website to HTML.
HTML5 is supported by the modern versions of Google Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Safari as well as Internet Explorer 9 and 10. It is also supported by some mobile browsers.
In HTML the rich interface elements don't require third party plugins. That means that in HTML5 it is possible to embed video and audio without using Flash.
HTML5 separates the web page content from the design therefore the search engines would easily recognize the part of the page they should index. We could expect that search engines like Google would give advantage to better organized websites and HTML5 is a better option.
