Release: New HTML5 Embedded Reader
Today, we are announcing the roll-out of HTML5 code for all websites that currently display Scribd content in Flash. The new embedded reader will still allow you to read the content, navigate to the content on Scribd and print it. Now, you will also be able to share the content on Scribd, Facebook and Twitter directly from the embed. Unlike Flash, HTML5 is supported by most mobile devices, such as iPhones, iPads and Android smartphones. This means that you will be able to read more Scribd embeds through your mobile devices! Starting today, all new content that is uploaded to Scribd and then embedded on a third-party website, will display in HTML5. In addition, all previously embedded content using the Flash-based reader will convert to HTML5 in the coming weeks.
