There was a time when Adobe Flash powered almost anything on the internet that moved. It was a dark time, but we didn’t even know how dark, until more efficient alternatives were developed and smartphones became common. Flash never adapted to this new world, and now Adobe is giving up. The company has announced it will discontinue Flash development by 2020.
Good riddance Flash - 2020 can't come soon enough! I dreaded taking this as part of Adobe classes knowing a better way was going mainstream in the very near future.
For almost 2 years now I've refused to install Flash/plugins (or use flash enabled sites) and never missed a thing.
