Flash not in the bin, but nearly…

The slow death of Adobe’s Flash Player continues.  Adobe partially drop the name last year.

It always amuses me how quickly a technology can become “mainstream” but how long it takes to ween ourselves off it when it becomes obsolete, like Windows XP, or, like Flash, an absolute liability.

Perhaps software companies should be forced to give firm Life Cycles to versions of software and be brought to task for faulty or vulnerable coding.

Perhaps behaviour of users needs to change to allow them to drop vulnerable software more easily.
