It’s late! Adobe Flash has burial scheduled for the end of this year


Adobe Flash has burial scheduled for the end of this year

Present in less than 5% of websites today, Adobe Flash, an archaic technology that has already featured in numerous cases involving security breaches, is practically dead – we can say that perhaps giving its last breaths.

Replaced by HTML5 (a lighter, more practical and stable solution), it has been blocked by default in most current browsers, obviously due to security and privacy issues.

Although it still releases some security packages periodically, Adobe has decided to reduce support for Flash since 2017 and now, finally, the company is determined to discontinue it for good.

The announcement was made through a publication on Adobe’s official website and highlights that after December 31, 2020, all Flash content available on the web will stop working.

One of the main reasons for this has to do with the growing use of mobile platforms (which do not support the plug-in), as well as the maturation of the HTML5 standard, which is currently quite popular.

The company behind the development of Flash currently discourages use, advising those who have it on their machines to uninstall.
