Microsoft has clearly showed its intention regarding the Adobe Flash Player once the Windows 10 Creator’s Update will be released. According to reports, once this new update will be installed on your computer, the Microsoft Edge will not load Flash Player by default and, instead, it will ask you if you really want to run Adobe’s application.
Microsoft said that “sites that support HTML5 will default to a clean HTML5 experience. In these cases, Flash will not even be loaded, improving performance, battery life, and security.”
The company has added that for the websites that will still depend on Flash, users will have to manually select if they want or not to load and run the Flash player on their computer.
However, there will also be exemptions, as one the most popular websites out there still relies on Flash Player as we speak. However, Microsoft has not mentioned exactly which websites will have the Adobe Flash Player enabled on Microsoft Edge by default.
Microsoft clearly shows its intention to make sure that Flash Player will die sooner in order to make sure that the HTML5 will take its place. We have to agree that the HTML5 is way more secure and comes with fewer bugs than the old “Flash Player”, so the web developers will need to start ditching Adobe’s application for HTML5.
Microsoft is not the only one that wants to see Adobe Flash Player shutdown. We remind you that Yahoo! and YouTube have already ditched it in favor of HTML5 and Google already informed the advertisers to stop using Flash in ads by January 2, 2017. The latter company has also blocked Flash ads from its Chrome browser.
Unfortunately for Adobe, its Flash Player will indubitably die sometime in the near future and this will probably happen sometime next year.
