Flash is on the verge of death

For several years, there were rumors about the end of support for Flash technology. In 2010, Steve Jobs negatively responded to this program, noting a large number of its errors. He also pointed out one of the features that Apple users faced: the rapid discharge of devices while using Flash.

Statistics show that for three years, the number of Chrome users visiting Flash sites daily has decreased to 63%.

Finally, after Google’s announcement of the end of support for Adobe Flash, Adobe had to admit that the technology was precipitously losing its popularity and prepared its own announcement that Flash would be killed by 2020. Until then, the company will continue working with Apple, Mozilla, Microsoft, and Google. Microsoft said it plans to disable Flash as a default plug-in for Edge and Internet Explorer browsers in the middle and the end of 2019, with a full removal from all supported versions of Windows by 2020. Google will continue phasing out Flash during the next few years. Mozilla has decided to give Firefox users a choice of websites which can run the Flash plugin by offering enhanced Firefox support for using Flash until 2020. Apple will also support Flash in Safari until 2020.

Thus, lots of business owners, companies, government organizations, and all those whom Adobe Flash provides with the necessary applications, face the challenge of alternative search. The importance of this need is confirmed by several facts:

  • Google Chrome currently covers 67% of the entire industry among the programs used to create the business environment;
  • over 3 million designers rely on Adobe Flash to create web and universal applications;
  • 34.89% of web applications and 10.39% of applications run using Adobe Flash innovation.

How to prepare the applications for the future functioning after 2020? The solution could be - WebGL.
