announced in 2020 that it planned to end all support of Flash at the end of 2020, bringing an official end to a technology that had been a staple of rich-media Web applications for a very long time.
Now Flash has been off by default for so long, most users won’t even notice when it’s fully gone. Since the announcement that Flash would be sunset, Web developers have largely replaced it with HTML5 and WebGL, among other other technologies.
How times have changed: when the iPhone was first introduced in 2007 with its own mobile version of Safari, the lack of Flash support was one of the main criticisms lobbed at the phone. Thirteen years ago, it seemed inconceivable to many that a user could get the full functionality of the Web without Flash.
Well, Flash no longer rules the Internet, anyway. That second part is the same as it has always been.
