Adobe Flash Gets Its Final Update Before It Goes Obsolete

Adobe Flash has just received its final update before it shuts down at the end of this year. The contribution of Adobe Flash has been astounding in shaping the earlier days of the internet when Flash was the only option to make your website look flashy and modern. The go-to solution for graphics slowly got bloated and replaced by better alternatives like HTML 5, which was much faster and less recourse consuming. Apart from this, it was also getting unstable from the security point of view. Adobe Flash has not been available to mobile devices for years, and the desktop browsers which supported it will soon drop the support at the end of this year.

Back in 2015, the WYSIWYG website providers like Moonfruit, which used Flash started moving to HTML 5. The web evolved at a rapid pace and outpaced the developments of Adobe Flash. After this, Adobe recognized the issue and decided in 2017 that it would soon phase out its Flash from the internet. However, ending the support took time as many other services like advertisement services still used Flash.

“We want to take a moment to thank all of our customers and developers who have used and created amazing Flash Player content over the last two decades. We are proud that Flash had a crucial role in evolving web content across animation, interactivity, audio, and video. We are excited to help lead the next era of digital experiences,” Adobe said in the final release notes. It has also been confirmed that Flash reaches EoL (end-of-life) on the last day of 2020. From January 12th, 2021, Adobe will actively block the plug-in from running content at the server-side.
