Flash mobile goes “dead parrot”

Written By: Bob - Nov• 09•11

Oh, happy day!

Adobe Systems (NASDAQ:ADBE) has killed Flash for mobile devices. It has ceased to be. It’s expired and gone to meet its maker. It’s a stiff. Bereft of life, it rests in peace. It has run down the curtain and joined the choir-invisible. In IT Blogwatch, bloggers mourn its passing. Or not. Beautiful plumage.

I have a confession to make: I’ve never been a Flash fan, refused to learn it, and hate having to support it. As a drinker of the HTML5 Kool-Aid (by the spigot, not the glass) I’m thrilled if this is the beginning of the end of Flash entirely. I’ll keep my fingers crossed.
