Since the date of Java shutdown in Chrome is approaching, I would like to write a review of Java uploader vs. its HTML5 counterpart. What features you will lose if you switch from Java to HTML5? Are they critical? Let's try to figure out.
While preparing the next Upload Suite update, we had some support requests regarding the problems with Internet Explorer when it runs in so-called EPM (Enhanced Protection Mode). So we had to figure out what is EPM and how our uploader should live with it.
After a recent iOS8 release, our HTML5 uploader stopped working there. It was the Apple's fault and fortunately they were kind enough to fix it in 8.0.2 released shortly. But this issue made me to recall the idea of a mobile-friendly HTML5 uploader.
