Adobe announces the end of Flash

Twitter Reacts To Adobe Discontinuing Flash Player In 2020

Adobe has been working to bring some of its Flash tooling into an HTML5 world.

But that was a lie: The real reason Jobs banned Flash from i-devices is that Adobe had earlier been slow porting Photoshop to Mac OS X, and was, at that time, supporting Windows better instead. Today usage is only 17 percent and continues to decline. Sometime in mid-2018, sites using Flash will need explicit user permission to run every time the browser is restarted. Moving forward, the software that had been called "Flash Professional" was renamed "Adobe Animate".

Firefox has also joined in, stating that users will be able to choose which sites can use Flash starting next month, and the plugin will be disabled for most users in 2019.

Frank and Barbara Sinatra founded the Barbara Sinatra Children's Center in Rancho Mirage , near Palm Springs, in 1986. The Barbara Sinatra Children's Center Foundation provided counseling to child abuse victims, among other services.

The company said in November 2015 that it would support open standards like HTML5, which gives web browsers some of the features that Flash offers.

Clearly, industry support exists for the removal of Flash in favor of HTML5 and other open technologies. The company has announced it will discontinue Flash development by 2020. Internet Explorer continues to allow Flash. Apple's refusal to support Flash on its wildly popular iOS mobile platform was perhaps the watershed moment for the technology.

It's a move that has been a long time coming-Apple famously left out support for Flash from the iPhone, which portended its inevitable demise nearly a decade ago. Even Facebook, a company that has a significant amount of Flash content on its site, is encouraging developers to start migrating their games to use HTML5 or other third-party solutions for interactive web content.

He added: "We have information that this man is risky , that he is aggressive and, shall we say, psychologically disturbed". Two people are in a serious condition, Swiss police confirmed, following the attack in the Swiss town of Schaffhausen.

There is still lots of content on the web that uses Flash - it's still built into Google's desktop Chrome browser - so the software will be supported through 2020. Users have options to re-enable Flash.

Afterwards, Flash will be disabled by default and then completely removed in Chrome towards the end of 2020.

Given this progress, and in collaboration with several of our technology partners - including Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Mozilla - Adobe is planning to end-of-life Flash. Hopefully, the "true" demise of Flash will happen quickly after that point since there will be no security updates to protect users from the scores of exploits that plague the software. When retiring an application, it is important to manage expectations by establishing and communicating an end-of-life support policy that governs retirement and sets a clear end-of-support date-in this case no later than the end of 2020.
