Flash has been almost entirely superseded by newer, faster and safer technologies. Many of the features that Flash used to be famed for can now be built entirely within the browser via HTML5, the latest version of the language used to build webpages.
The benefits of moving away from Flash haven’t gone unnoticed by web developers.
In 2014, the technology was used to power 21 percent of all the mobile and web video present online. In 2015, that decreased to just six percent, leaving a big gap filled by new open source standards developed to replace Adobe’s proprietary and insecure Flash video format.
Adobe Flash has gained a reputation for harbouring critical zero day exploits and vulnerabilities that could give hackers complete control of devices. One such major issue was reported last October.
A flaw in all versions of Flash let hackers target users and then take control of their computer, regardless of the operating system it ran. Although Adobe was quick to patch the culprit, the vulnerability was by no means an isolated incident. To add insult to injury, it was discovered the day after Adobe released its monthly security update rollup.
Rival WebM has its own set of advantages, including the ability to use it without paying for royalties. WebM is currently ahead of H.265 with 12 percent market share and wide support from browsers. Both H.265 and WebM are far more accomplished codecs than Flash ever was, capable of saving bandwidth and optimising video to suit the connection they’re being used on.
Flash is now very close to the end of its life. Major browser Google Chrome now disables Flash content by default and even Adobe has distanced itself from the plugin, renaming the software used to create Flash content to “Animate.”
