Adobe surprised many late last year when computer programmer were informed that the company no longer had programs to develop future builds of Flash Player for mobile browsers. instead, they will be considering all of their concentration on HTML5 and other web technologies.
The commencing of the end starts tomorrow as Adobe starts doesn’t allow new Flash Player installs on Android.
Adobe made a valiant struggle to get mobile Flash player installed on all handsets but found early resistance with Apple.
The late Steve Jobs released an open letter in April 2010 that described precisely why Flash was not permitted on the iPhone, iPod and iPad. In no short order, Jobs criticized on effectiveness of flash, security, impact on battery life and performance in addition to claiming that player was according to web standard.
His claim to Adobe was to concentrate more on creating great HTML5 tools.
No doubt, that’s not to say that Flash player is going anywhere anytime soon. There is still a big market for Flash player on desktop systems as evident by Google currently adding better Flash support to their Chrome browser.
Microsoft already planned to ship Windows 8 without Flash player support but apparently had a alteration of heart seeing as numbers of contents still are not HTML5 ready.
As such, Redmond will be bundling up Internet Explorer 10 with a targeted amount of Flash content in order to make secure, reliability and battery life for Windows 8 style browsing.
But just how long Flash player will be applicable is anyone’s guess.
