Flash loses final appeal: Adobe sentences its web tech to death


Cnet has the article Flash loses final appeal: Adobe sentences its web tech to death.

Countless nails have been hammered in Flash’s coffin in recent years, most notably by Apple’s Steve Jobs and also by Adobe itself. Now, though, there’s a date for the funeral: Dec. 31, 2020.

This may be the only good news I have been able to blog about in a long time. I have banished Flash from all my computer based hardware for a few years now. I instituted the ban after the first big security failure that Flash suffered. I have had to give up looking at some web sites that insisted on using Flash, but they have become fewer and fewer. By the end of 2020, I won’t be missing anything by refusing to allow Flash on my computers.
