    As previously announced in July 2017, Adobe will stop distributing and updating Flash Player after December 31, 2020 (“EOL Date”). We made this announcement in collaboration with several of our technology partners – including Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Mozilla – which issued complementary announcements with more technical detail on what the Flash Player EOL will mean for developers, enterprises, and consumers using their specific OS environments or browsers.

    I actually uninstalled the bugger from my PC a few weeks ago.

    My mom and step-dad are going to go bonkers when it can no longer be updated. They absolutely LOVE the free jigsaw puzzles that presently use FP and get quite upset when they don't work because of a needed update. I'm wondering if the sponsors of those puzzles are going to do anything to make them still work once FP is totally ended?

    RIP. Won't be missed but it was a long-standing integral part of the web over the years, specifically the talented CGI artists that made cartoons and the like.

    Yeah I enjoyed those cartoons when I was younger, and the wacky games.
