Full story here:Google is phasing out Adobe Flash in its popular Chrome web browser.
The search giant laid out its plan to nix the buggy multimedia player by the end of the year in a publicly accessible proposal on Google GOOG 0.80% Slides, the company’s slideshow presentation program. The draft roadmap, as first reported on by VentureBeat, details the company’s plan to move beyond Adobe’s ADBE 1.31% software, which is perennially plagued with security vulnerabilities, and transition to HTML5, a markup language that supports multimedia content, as the default.
In short: Flash and the Flash Uploader is dead. They will stop working normally in Chrome this year. I have no doubt that Firefox will follow. Most likely this Chrome will completely kill off Flash some time later.
