Adobe announced today that they will cease support and distribution for the Flash player at the end of 2020.

Not a moment too soon...Indeed several years too late.

I wonder how much of this is corporate responsibility and how much is simply accepting the inevitable truth that they can't really monetise it any more.

I think the holdup was, Flash is still widely used by many sites across the net. It took a while for many site owners, advertising aggregates and developers to see the light that Flash was bloated old tech that also harbored endless security flaws.

I always thought Flash was great in the early years but after Adobe purchased it from Macromedia, they never seemed to see the advantages or advantages the effort and investment to make it leaner and meaner and fell woefully behind when HTML5 took over.

I know I won't miss Flash. It's time to move on for everyone.

It's a pity Adobe bought Macromedia in general. The competition was good. Flash was good too. Now I'm mostly surprised anyone is still using it.

As some people may have noticed, some colour management software like the ColorChecker profile creatiion program and Eizo's ColorNavigator uses Adobe AIR. AIR is the standalone incarnation of Flash. Typically it is bundled inside apps so that each app has a private copy. So of course one wonders whether AIR wil remain supported. The answer is yes, it will:

(Older versions of Photoshop installed AIR system-wide, where it needed to be patched on the same schedule as Flash. CC doesn't, at least since I've been a subscriber.)

I liked Flash, if for no other reason than that is was easy to block.
