Adobe Edge, our new HTML5 web motion and interaction design tool, was released as a public preview yesterday. In the first 24 hours, it has been downloaded more than 50,000 times — pretty, pretty good for a development tool! Response has been great so far, from the community and the pundits, although I suppose it wouldn’t be an Adobe product launch if you didn’t get some florid commentary from the fan-bois, as John Nack notes in his post.
We also launched the Expressive Web, showcasing the features and functionality that HTML5 and CSS3 can bring to the modern web. Look for future Edge updates as we integrate new features over the next few months, with commercial release slated for 2012.
