Scribd, Doctoc, Issuu or something else?

I have been trying to figure this out ever since Scribd came up with the news that they are planning to move from flash to HTML5 for their document sharing website because of the inherent problems in flash, as it doesn't work in several devices. All other players in the document sharing market like docstoc and issuu are still sticking to flash for now, though html5 will be the next logical step.

The problem is that the website I plan to build will depend a lot on these document viewers. I hope that scribd will get html5 technology to APIs as well.

Hopefully, something will work out with regards to this issue...
