The End of an Era - Next Steps for Adobe Flash

The End of an Era - Next Steps for Adobe Flash

If so, it will be time to say goodbye soon, because the company announced that it will get rid of the program by the end of 2020.

Adobe is encouraging content developers to switch to an open format like HTML5, WebGL and WebAssembly.

Adobe saying, "In collaboration with several of our technology partners including Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Mozilla, Adobe is planning to end-of-life (EOL) Flash".

"Today, most browser vendors are integrating capabilities once provided by plugins directly into browsers and deprecating plugins", Adobe admitted in a blog post.

As open standards like HTML5, WebGL and WebAssembly have matured over the past several years, most now provide numerous capabilities and functionalities that plugins pioneered and have become a viable alternative for content on the web.

How Flash zero-day attack via malvertisement works. This time, the new zero-day vulnerability was found to be being exploited by a Russian state-sponsored hacking group dubbed as 'Pawn Storm'. Internet Explorer will continue to allow Flash for all sites in 2018. "Though the operating system for the iPhone, iPod and iPad is proprietary, we strongly believe that all standards pertaining to the Web should be open", Jobs wrote in the letter.

Sunsetting Flash doesn't mean an end to Adobe's streak in innovating the development of new web standards. Users will no longer have any ability to enable or run Flash.

While Flash has become the basis of many industries and businesses, such as gaming, education and video, its use has dwindled in recent years - Google shared stats showing that just 17% of Chrome users visit a webpage using Flash each day, after it stopped enabling it by default, compared to 80% three years ago. "In addition, we plan to move more aggressively to EOL Flash in certain geographies where unlicensed and outdated versions of Flash Player are being distributed".
