For years – since 2007, at least – we’ve been encouraging people to drop Flash. We haven’t built a Flash site in the last five years, and several of our projects have involved rebuilding websites we’ve already designed in Flash, long ago, so that they’re friendlier to modern web browsing expectations. (Our redesign of Masu Sushi‘s website is a good example.)
So the news was not much of a surprise to us today: Adobe Flash Meets Its End. Adobe officially announced today that they’re no longer developing Flash for mobile devices. You could argue that Steve won, but we think everybody won. We doubt it will be long before Adobe stops developing Flash altogether. The writing has been on the wall for years.
