The Adobe Flash web technology has long enabled content creators to offer interactive online gaming, video, and education services but Flash has also long struggled with malware and vulnerabilities. There are much better and safer web technologies available now. No wonder major web browsers have been automatically blocking Flash. Adobe itself has confirmed today that it’s finally going to kill Flash by the end of 2020.
Google announced earlier this year that it’s eventually going to phase out Adobe Flash with HTML5 by default to provide Chrome users with a safer and more power-efficient experience.

This is being done in the interest of improving security, page load times and […]
With the release of latest Android 4.4 Kitkat OS, Google officially parted ways with Adobe Flash.

We do not look favorably upon the use of relative terms when it comes to upcoming releases and updates, where “soon” and “shortly” could mean very different things depending on the context and situation. However, it cannot be helped, as sometimes that is just the case as it is. Microsoft issued an official statement touting that Windows 8 users will be on the receiving end of critical security updates for […]
Adobe might have killed off the mobile Flash platform, but at least they are a company of their word – they have, after all, promised to update their Flash for Android client in order to support Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and have kept to their promise with the latest update nudging Flash to version 126.96.36.199.

Let us have a minute’s silence with word that Adobe has released their final version of the Flash Player for the range of Android devices and the BlackBerry PlayBook, although the company did pencil in a promise for future updates.

Apple’s most recent OS X update has yielded some pretty interesting information – we’re talking about 40% of the fixes targeting nothing but Adobe Flash out of the 130 plus bugs corrected. Could this be one of the main reasons why Steve Jobs decided that Flash isn’t really suitable for mobile devices, since the platform does seem to be pretty vulnerable, making it a snap for hackers with devious intent […]

In […]
