Not a wet eye in the house...

Except businesses who believed their web developer when they said Flash was the next big thing.

"Millions of websites will be rendered at least partially inoperable when Adobe Flash is finally killed off at the end of this year."

"Flash is used as client-side programming language by 2.6% of the sites it has measured this month1, which equates to 260,000 of the top 10 million sites still using Flash."
"There are various estimates of how many websites there are in the world, with most suggesting there are between 1.5bn and 2bn, which means the number actually running Flash content will easily run into the millions, if not tens of millions."

They said it was the next big thing- around 2008.

Adobe announced the phaseout three years ago. If the websites in question didn't prepare, either from laziness or cheaping out on their development budget, well... This didn't just come out of nowhere is all I'm saying.

Adobe Flash is dead, long live Adobe Animate.

Flash has been a security nightmare, glad to see it get banned from the browser.   And no, most businesses with competent software programmers won't even look back.
