RIP Flash (1996-2020)

7 posts in this topic

The end will soon be there for flash. Adobe has decided to end support for the Flash Player by 2020: https://consumerist.com/2017/07/25/adobe-flash-will-finally-die-in-2020

At the beginning, the technology was okay to use. But now, it's slow, unstable and buggy. HTML5 and WebGL replace pretty much most of that today.

Fucking finally. Hope Java will follow suit soon.

 

Using Archive.org to reach Flash-powered sites will become more difficult, though.

Java isn't going anywhere. It's a perfectly legitimate cross platform language. Anything with a large user base is inevitably going to be targeted more often than more esoteric or specific things.

I don't mean Java as a language, but the web plugin.

Even Microsoft's stuff doesn't get updated with minor updates as frequently, meaning there's something fundamentally vulnerable within it.

I haven't installed either flash or java for over a year and I'm quite happy with it. Esp for my laptop as it doesn't get bogged down by a badly coded resource hogging emulator (java).
