Adobe: Stop using Flash

Wow! This is one for the books – Adobe telling everyone to stop using a product of theirs!

This is just reinforcing what we’ve known all along – Flash is a security┬ánightmare! Mozilla and Chrome have been actively blocking flash for some time now and I must say, I don’t really miss it. Considering the huge amount of Flash placeholders on the sites I visit, it’s still very much in use … which means that website builders are not getting the message.

The bulk of internet users out there may still not understand the implications, and they continue to use Flash even though it’s probably one of the most insecure and hacked pieces of software ever. Time for awareness and change.
