Flash was dead a few years back when Steve Jobs put the hit on it, by not allowing Flash on iOS. Then Firefox slapped Flash off the side its’ head, by blocking it. Then Facebook’s security chief ripped into Flash, calling for it to be trashed.
… But wait, there’s more!
Now Google is blocking Flash ads (at least) and that my nerd friends, means the end of Flash. It is no more, and we shall not speak of this passe, bloated, security risk again.
Ahh, how technologies come and go – a very short version of the dead-tech list:
- Perl CGI
- Classic ASP
… Is Ruby next?
If you want to do ‘flashy’ things, use HTML5. It’s just better.
