Adobe cooperates with Apple and other companies tech to say goodbye to Flash Player by 2020
Despite a long list of disadvantages and the advent of technologies certainly better, Adobe Flash Player continues to resist. But be careful, the situation is bound to change, as Adobe today announced that it will put the word “end” in the plug-in by the end of 2020.
Adobe has said that she has started a cooperation with the companies, Apple and Google included, to prepare the ground for the imminent goodbye of Flash: "given the progress, and in collaboration with several of our partner tech – including Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Mozilla – Adobe has scheduled the end of Flash. Precisely, we will stop to update and deploy the Flash Player by the end of 2020 and invoglieremo content creators to migrate any existing Flash content to new formats".
As part of the announcement, Apple has shared this press release with this blog, WebKit: "Apple is working with Adobe, industry partners and developers to complete this transition. Apple users browse the web without Flash for quite some time. iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch have ever supported Flash. For the Mac, the transition from Flash began in 2010, when Flash was not pre-installed. Today, if the users could install the Flash, the Flash would be turned off by default. Safari requires permits precise on each and every web site before you run the Flash plug-in".
As noted by Apple, the goodbye to Flash Player will have no consequence on the iOS devices, since the plug-in has never been supported. In this regard, it is interesting to recall the words of Steve Jobs: "The huge amount of multimedia content providers to offer for Apple's mobile devices demonstrates that Flash is no longer necessary to watch video or for any other type of web content. And the 250,000 apps on Apple's App Store prove that Flash is not necessary for many developers to create applications that are graphically rich, games included. New open standards created in the era of the mobile, such as HTML5, will dominate on mobile devices (and also PC). Also Adobe should focus more on creating great tools HTLM5 for the future, and less on criticizing Apple for having left the past behind".
