With the announcement last month that Adobe is no longer providing certifications for flash on Android 4.1, it seems clear. Flash is dying.
Adobe made a stop in Chicago for their North American Flash Tour.
The Flash Tour took place on May 16, 2012 at the Leo Burnett offices, and Adobe evangelists Mike Chambers and Lee Brimelow were on hand to talk about the future of Adobe Flash and what’s new and upcoming for the technology. Flash is widely used for online advertising, the videos on YouTube, among many other uses like online games.
Several changes that Adobe made in Flash 11.3 aim to boost the browser plugin’s security and reduce its susceptibility to attacks. The most significant of those changes is the introduction of sandboxing on the Windows platform.
It appears that ditching Adobe System’ Flash Player wasn’t as easy as Microsoft thought earlier this year.
Because screenshots from WinUnleaked show the browser plug-in working even in the Metro version of IE10 where Microsoft had earlier said plug-ins would be barred.
