Adobe to Re-Start Support Flash Player on Linux Machines
Did you hear– Adobe to Re-Start Support Flash Player on Linux Machines?
Some of the hardcore Linux users might remember that fact (actually, they will never forget it), that Adobe to the decision to ditch support for its buggy and outdated cross-browser plugin designed to allow users to view various web content written in Flash, such as videos or embedded audio players, or even entire websites.
Well, many Linux users were very sorry to hear that the Adobe Flash Player plugin will never be updated again. That wasn’t an end.
The world evolved, as always, and new technologies are invented to replace the old ones and make our lives much better. That’s why HTML 5 replaced Adobe’s Flash more than a year ago.
Today’s most popular web browsers are using HTML 5 by default, and the Linux users, don’t even know what Flash Player is. But it looks like Adobe changed its mind after four years of only patching the Linux port with security fixes, to bring Flash Player on par with the Windows and Mac OS X versions.
At the end, am so happy because I didn’t expect to hear this. As much as I dislike Flash. It’s still used on many websites and it will be nice to have a new and more secure version.
Wishing you a luck Adobe and hope you won’t gonna ditch again.
