    In the Spirit of the Internet,



    Adobe Flash is finally dead




    Adobe Flash is dead, long live Adobe Flash. Late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs famously penned a public letter about Adobe Flash back in 2010. Jobs wasn’t the first person to dislike Flash. In fact, developers had hated the technology for years because of its volatility and instability. But Jobs made their plight public and the Internet is now a better place because of it. Once in the public eye, Adobe had no choice but to devote time and resources to making Flash a better product, and the Flash experience of 2015 is nowhere near as bad as it was five years ago ...

    Adobe Flash authoring tools change name to Animate CC, reflecting that it creates multiple media types.
    Adobe Flash in browsers isn't changing, but lots of sites use HTML5 now instead, for the same functions.

    P.S. Running with Flash on 'click to run' greatly increases security and browsing speed, as does
    using an Ad Blocker/hosts file and/or NoScript..

    Adobe Admits: Apple Won, Flash For Mobile is Done, HTML5 is the Future


    Adobe developer relations lead Mike Chambers has posted a lengthy explanation of why the company decided stop development of the mobile browser version of Flash.

    The response comes as the health of the entire Flash ecosystem is in doubt. Adobe announced that Flash Player 11.1 would be the last version of Flash for mobile devices, though the company would continue to fix critical bugs. The company is also abandoning Flash on connected TVs.

    Here we go again: New Adobe Flash vulnerability lets hackers take over your PC


    Remember that time Adobe confirmed a vulnerability in Flash that was so bad, the only way to protect yourself was to uninstall Flash completely? Well this new security flaw isn’t quite as dire, but it is something that you need to be aware of and act on immediately. The good news is that unlike that last major security hole, Adobe has already patched the problems and made an update available for download ...
