Flash Player Phase Out

Recommended Posts

I just got a Message that Flash Player will be getting Phased Out from Chrome.

Says that at the end of 2020, we will not be able to Play Arcade Games after Flash Player is Phased Out and from now on until then, we have to click an Icon in order to Enable Flash Player.

I had been wondering what was up as for the past 8 months or so, I would have to Click On Enable Flash Reader every time I wanted to Play the Flash Games. I originally thought that I had some Virus or an outdated Internet Access Program.

So from what I read, they are not putting into place anything to replace Flash Player. What is the Scam here?! Are they going to make us Pay $$$ to get the New Utility that replaces Flash Player?!

I bet that is what those Money Grubbing Assholes are doing!

This is the Message I got:

 

Today, Adobe announced its plans to stop supporting Flash at the end of 2020.

For 20 years, Flash has helped shape the way that you play games, watch videos and run applications on the web. But over the last few years, Flash has become less common. Three years ago, 80 percent of desktop Chrome users visited a site with Flash each day. Today usage is only 17 percent and continues to decline.

This trend reveals that sites are migrating to open web technologies, which are faster and more power-efficient than Flash. They’re also more secure, so you can be safer while shopping, banking, or reading sensitive documents. They also work on both mobile and desktop, so you can visit your favorite site anywhere.

These open web technologies became the default experience for Chrome late last year when sites started needing to ask your permission to run Flash. Chrome will continue phasing out Flash over the next few years, first by asking for your permission to run Flash in more situations, and eventually disabling it by default. We will remove Flash completely from Chrome toward the end of 2020.

If you regularly visit a site that uses Flash today, you may be wondering how this affects you. If the site migrates to open web standards, you shouldn’t notice much difference except that you'll no longer see prompts to run Flash on that site. If the site continues to use Flash, and you give the site permission to run Flash, it will work through the end of 2020.

It’s taken a lot of close work with Adobe, other browsers, and major publishers to make sure the web is ready to be Flash-free. We’re supportive of Adobe’s announcement today, and we look forward to working with everyone to make the web even better.

Since getting those Messages, Chrome seems to be Slow and doing Minor Malfunctions.

And every time I Boot Up, it prompts me to Click on an Icon to Disable Flash Player.

So some reason, those Assholes are Trying Hard to get rid of Flash Player.

What scares me much more is what happens when they start phasing out Windows 7, due to start next January.  I absolutely, totally, do not want to use Windows 8 or 10 as I find them the most irritating operating systems on the planet, if not the entire universe.

Never heard of Windows 8 but had to get Windows 10 with a New Computer in November 2017 when my Old Windows XP Computer's Hard Drive konked out.

I concur on Windows 10.

When I am Typing a Message or Playing a Computer Game, my Windows 10 Machine suddenly starts doing all kinds of Weird Things such as Opening Weird Windows that you never clicked on, Control Panel Window suddenly Opening asking what it can Help You with, or the spontaneously Screen Scrolling Up & Down.

And when I actually try to make those things happen on purpose to see what is Triggering Them, it will not happen.

So Annoying!!!

 

Windows XP was so User Friendly.
