Adobe recently pulled the plug on Flash Player for mobile, which was met with applaud from most of the world. However, it looks like it’s not going to be enough for some people. And now, a bunch of developers who claim to have worked for Adobe in the past and none of the company’s competitors have started a movement called Occupy Flash. The goal of the movement? To get the world to uninstall the Flash Player plugin from their desktop browsers.
They started a website with detailed instructions on how to disable Flash on computers. According to them, HTML5 is the way to go, and in order for technology to progress, sacrifices have to be made and in this case it would be Flash. While it’s true that Flash might be buggy, isn’t very safe and unstable; there are tons of stuff online that has already been coded in Flash and can’t be so easily replaced. It would be a shame to see a whole world of content rendered unusable just because of this movement.
After all, there wouldn’t be sites like Newgrounds.com and the like if there was no such thing as Flash for web browsers. Adobe had better step up its game by fixing Flash or witness the death of its own creation (provided Occupy Flash succeeds).
