Adobe Finally Kills Off Flash – RIP Flash

 

FlashRIP.jpgAdobe announced that Flash, the once-ubiquitous plugin that allowed you to play your first Justin Bieber video on YouTube and Dolphin Olympics 2 on Kongregate, will be phased out by the end of 2020. At that point, Adobe will stop updating and distributing Flash. Until then, Adobe will still partner with the likes of Apple, Mozilla, Microsoft and Google to offer security updates for Flash in their browsers and support new versions of them, but beyond that, Adobe will not offer any new Flash features.

Flash isn’t the most secure plugin for web browsers. It’s a favorite among creators of malware, who use the platform to distribute malicious advertising. It’s gotten so bad over the years that security researchers even advise users to completely purge it from their computers.
