The end of Adobe Flash Player is not near, it's here! 23:51 | Feb 05 , 2017 | Valon Badivuku -Blog

The end of Adobe Flash Player is not near, it's here!

By the end of February 2017, Google intends to have 100% of Chrome users blocking Flash content by default. During next few months, Google Chrome won’t even be able to recognize if Flash is installed. Even Adobe Flash Player creator, Adobe inc. is advising people to remove it from their devices.

This is because, despite Flash’s use in creating animations and in-page Apps, it has become increasingly slower, is a drain on battery life, and does not support touch-screen interfaces. This is highly relevant due to more than 50% of web traffic coming from mobile platforms. Additionally, Flash has become a major source for security holes and malicious exploits.

If your website still uses Flash you need to be switching to the newer web standard such as HTML or preferably HTML5.

HTML5 doesn’t need any 3rd party plugins installed. It is cross-compatible with ALL platforms and browsers by default. HTML5 is designed with mobile browsing in mind and is up to 80% more responsive.

Here at TRIPIKA, our Full-Stack Developers are highly proficient with HTML5, and it is used in all our projects as to conform to the latest industry standards.

Just recently we replaced Zbritje's Flash player banners and other features with an HTML5 and made it responsive for all devices.

This has greatly increased the number of views their media gets.

With Flash no longer being updated to support new platforms, and with some browsers actively preventing it from running, it is a question of “when” not “if” you need to update.
