So Long, and thanks for all the Flash < Tools  | Adobe

For the past five years (or more), pundits have been heralding, some going as far as declaring the end of Flash media player, an undisputed pioneer in the web player landscape.  Well, the day, or at least the announcement of a day, has finally arrived.

in collaboration with several of our technology partners – including Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Mozilla – Adobe is planning to end-of-life Flash. Specifically, we will stop updating and distributing the Flash Player at the end of 2020 and encourage content creators to migrate any existing Flash content to these new open formats.
