    Default Adobe Announces Plans To Abandon Flash On Linux

    Phoronix: Adobe Announces Plans To Abandon Flash On Linux

    Adobe has issued a statement this morning that they will effectively be abandoning Flash Player support on Linux. After Flash Player 11.2 they will no longer be providing updates for Linux users but just maintaining the 11.2 release. Google is expected to take over with a Flash Player implementation based upon a new API, but only for Google Chrome-based web-browsers...

    Well this was kind of surprising... Lets hope this means that flash will die and be replaced by something better (and more open).

    I'm not surprised after them dropping Android and not even supporting Chrome on Android either

    Default Good riddance

    This will increase the pressure to switch to html5 <video>, and will improve browsers' support for it. Google will probably lead the way. Adobe's support for Linux had a third-citizenship status lately, anyway.

    Bad news, my gf likes to play sushi cat / sushi cat 2... u_u

    Regarding flash adobe should have been banned already, f.e. on sites like newgrounds, all content is delivered via flash, and flash requires latest version - means, your either have flash and get access, or you dont get access. Means destruction of basic internet principles and standards.

    Only ones who made this happen are developers!! JUST STOP USING FALSH PLEASE!!!

    Great so we are forced to use Chrome on Linux if we want flash. What a croc...

    I think you've got it the wrong way round. Adobe are dropping Linux. Google have stepped up and said they'll support it using Pepper which any one else is free to use
