Loading faster

Unlike flash client which needs flash player to run, HTML chat client loads much faster because it is based on web.

Easy to control

The new features for HTML5 chat are more in favor of moderator and admin to control the chat room. Such as admin / super admin can change skin and smileys or add temporary moderator. The moderator can ban users too or add temporary moderator. The VIP/plus/premium user can ban, mute and kick user. Those features can't be implemented on flash client.

However all chat customizations on flash chat client can't be used on HTML chat client, even the skin or smileys. If the chat needs to change from flash chat client to HTML chat, it means all customization will be lost since every piece of them needs to be repeated on HTML client.
