Adobe Flash is on its death bed…. circling the drain…

[You get it…]

Adobe will stop supporting Flash by the end of 2020.

Until mid/late 2018, Microsoft Edge will continue to ask users for permission to run Flash on most sites the first time the site is visited, and will remember the user’s preference on subsequent visits but Internet Explorer will continue to allow Flash with no special permissions required during this time.

By mid/late 2018, for Edge, it will require permission for Flash to be run each session. Internet Explorer will continue to allow Flash for all sites in 2018.

By mid/late 2019, Flash will be disabled by default in both Edge and Internet Explorer but can be re-enabled in both browsers. But when re-enabled, Edge will continue to require approval for Flash on a site-by-site basis.

By the end of 2020, Flash won’t be able to run in Edge and Internet Explorer across all supported versions of Microsoft Windows.

Mozilla said Flash will be disabled in 2019 and users will choose what sites can run Flash in 2018.

Note that Silverlight will die at the end of October 2021 [although few care!].
