Adobe will bring Flash out of its misery at the end of 2020
Adobe Flash has been on its deathbed for years. The company unplugged Flash Player for mobile in 2012 and announced in 2017 that it would eventually phase out flash for desktop operating systems as well.
Now the end is near.
Adobe announced that Flash Player will officially come to the end of its life December 31, 2020.
At this point, most people are unlikely to miss it. There was a time when Flash was the de facto standard for developers who wanted to create media content for the web, including apps, games, and videos. But that time is long gone.
Few websites still use Flash, and most modern web browsers have phased out support for the technology … which over the years has gained a reputation for both consuming resources and containing vulnerabilities. allowing attackers to infect your system with malware.
So in some ways… Flash will never really die.
Probably most importantly, he will die at the end of this year.
