Stop flash from updating
In the past year, several web browsers have begun to require users to enable Flash before running it.
On Google’s Chrome, the most popular web browser, Flash’s usage has already fallen drastically.
The intent of this Success Criterion is to avoid distracting users during their interaction with a Web page."Moving, blinking and scrolling" refers to content in which the visible content conveys a sense of motion.
Common examples include motion pictures, synchronized media presentations, animations, real-time games, and scrolling stock tickers.
Adobe said it will work with Facebook as well as Unity Technologies and Epic Games to help developers migrate their games.
Adobe said it does not expect Flash’s sunset to have an impact on its bottom line.
The technology simply has too many vulnerabilities attackers can exploit to compromise their victims' devices.
That's why people like Facebook CSO Alex Stamos have called on Adobe to kill Flash since 2015.
That's good news for open standards--and for the security of countless people.
After 2020, Adobe will stop releasing updates for Flash and web browsers will no longer support it.
The companies are encouraging developers to migrate their software onto modern programming standards.
More recently, we criticized Fed Ex in January for encouraging its customers to enable Flash because doing so made them more vulnerable to attack, and Microsoft released critical security patches related to the technology in March.
A relic of the web's early ages has caused significant problems for people living in the modern era.
