Why aren't web animations more popular due to these apps? Is there something wrong with Edge for example?

Unwillingness to appropriate the personnel money (i.e. either hiring people with animating skills or giving a current staff member a raise and having them take on the responsibility of learning to animate) could be a major bottleneck.

these tools are still in development, as well as the technology they are developed to.

they are becoming popular. maybe in 2013! (:

Real animation is expensive; and there are many trade-offs for working with such an unstable and cpu-dependent technology. Besides; video and Flash are still "good enough" for most use cases (children animated series, educational videos, etc).
