  • So, it appears that the era of Flash is ending, with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean not supporting this technology and Adobe announcing it hasn’t been developing or testing Flash on the latest Android releases. Adobe previously gave up Flash support in Chrome for Android and now it appears that starting August 15th, fresh installs from Google Play of Flash will be disabled.

    This means that you will only update Flash if you already have it installed and if you don’t, you’re out of luck… and Flash. There was a time in the past when Steve Jobs criticized Flash and everyone attacked him for that… Not it has come to this and we have to remember that Apple was among the first to stay away from Flash and actually get a ton of commercials aimed at them because of this. I remember that the Toshiba Thrive, for example had an ad relying on the Flash capability versus the iPad.

    So, will you feel the desire to install Flash anytime soon? Will we miss those browser-based Flash games or the videos? What about the gaping holes in security and the slowdowns in functioning it causes? Comment here!
