Twitch ditches Flash, rolls out new HTML5 web player controls

Twitch is the next company to move from Flash for its online content. The popular video game streaming service has announced the rollout of new web player controls, which are now coded in HTML5 and JavaScript.

While it's not an entirely new web player, this does mark a significant step for Twitch. Do note that this is a "gradual rollout" and may therefore take some time before you see it on your Twitch account. It's a welcomed upgrade and a change we're sure many will approve of.
