Adobe Flash rides off into the sunset


#Adobe scheduled to end support for its famous #Flash on #December 31st, 2020, and today is the day. #While #Adobe won’t start blocking #Flash content until #January 12th, major browsers will shut it all down tomorrow and #Microsoft will block it in most versions of #Windows. #It’s over.

#Flash enjoyed huge cultural relevance and looms large in web history, which might be why its funeral procession has lasted for years. #Browsers started showing #Flash the door early in the last decade, and in 2015 #Adobe asked developers to move on to HTML5. #Things became official in 2017, when #Adobe announced it would end support.

#While #Adobe is finally (mercifully) letting #Flash go, it will live on in many historical artifacts. The #Internet #Archive is preserving #Flash games and animations, including well-known hits like “Peanut #Butter #Jelly #Time.”

I personally loved making stuff in #Flash as a high school student with a totally-legitimate copy of the #Adobe software on my generic HP desktop PC. #Years later, any time I see some fancy words slide into a corporate presentation, I recall struggling to figure out how to animate motion tweens in the #Flash editor. #Ah, memories.
