Will HTML5 have advantages over Flash Player?

I have read that Flash player is expected to be phased out as the online video and online game standard and HTML 5 will come in it's place. Will HTML5 have any advantages over flash?


A side issue: I have also read that Adobe has stopped developing Flash for mobile devices, the author's comment was that the next setp will be Adobe stopping developing Flash for PCs which spells the death of Flash

Wikipedia is a generally good source but always in a state of flux.

When I tried Silverlight...
