LXer: Adobe Announces Plans To Abandon Flash On Linux


Published at LXer:

Adobe has issued a statement this morning that they will effectively be abandoning Flash Player support on Linux. After Flash Player 11.2 they will no longer be providing updates for Linux users but just maintaining the 11.2 release. Google is expected to take over with a Flash Player implementation based upon a new API, but only for Google Chrome-based web-browsers.

Well, that's the end of flash for me. Just in time as I've gotten rid of all other proprietary software.

I have some subscriptions with sites that stream flash video (movies/sports), so I guess that means I'll need to eventually migrate from Firefox to Chrome (if Firefox doesn't adopt the new API). I haven't seen any recent slackbuild scripts for chrome (only chromium, which I don't think has built in flash). In a perfect world these sites would switch to HTML5.
