The end of Flash?

The end of FlashDo you remember when Steve Jobs wrote an open letter on the security issues of Flash? That was way back in 2010.

Guess others should have listened to him while he was alive because Flash remained bug ridden over the years and many hackers have taken mean advantage.

iPhones never supported Flash. Android smartphones don’t either (they did initially though!). YouTube parted ways with Flash in January 2015.  Now, if you are a Firefox user you would have noticed that the Flash plugin has been blocked by default. YouTube videos may also not play if you have not selected the HTML 5 player.  If that’s the case, you can rectify the issue by visiting the following URL:

All this mess, and you still find some Sri Lankan clients wanting Flash on their new website… Aiyo!  Kata kiyannada??
