The third day Flash died?

Nov 09, 2011

My previous post about the ongoing death of Flash got a lot of support but also a few sceptics, which were obviously expected.

The halt of mobile browser Flash development by Adobe today is another milestone that directly confirms my two main points:

  1. The number of valid use cases for Flash is shrinking fast. There are still some ones that make sense, don't get me wrong, but they'll get more and more specific as time goes by.
  2. Adobe continues to demonstrate major courage and open-mindedness. I'm betting they'll have one of the best HTML5 creative tools in a few years.
