  1. Mozilla plans to drop Flash support in Firefox 84 (December 2020) All major browser makers plan to remove Flash support from their browsers in 2020. Adobe announced the deprecation of Adobe Flash in 2017 and companies like Google, Microsoft or Mozilla revealed plans to end support for the technology in their browsers. Adobe Flash won't receive security updates anymore from 2021 on. Firefox uses a plugin system to integrate Adobe Flash, that is installed on the system, into the web browser. Google Chrome and other Chromium-based browsers ship with a native Flash integration instead. The current state of Flash in Firefox is the following: Flash is disabled by default in Firefox but users may activate Flash on individual sites if they require it. Flash is the only NPAPI plugin that Firefox still supports; support for other NPAPI-based plugins such as Microsoft Silverlight was dropped in Firefox 52 which Mozilla released in 2017. Mozilla updated the Flash deprecation schedule recently; the organization revealed the Firefox version and the month in which Flash would be removed from Firefox. According to the schedule, Flash will be removed in Firefox 84 Stable, which Mozilla plans to release in December 2020. Flash support will be removed earlier from development builds. From Firefox Nightly, the cutting edge development build of Firefox, it will be removed in October 2020. Firefox users may disable Flash in the browser already or remove Flash from the system entirely as this will also remove Flash support in Firefox. Here is the remaining schedule: September 2019 (current state) -- Always Activate option is removed. Firefox will always prompt for permission if sites require Flash. October 2020 -- Flash support is removed in Firefox Nightly 84. December 2020 -- Flash support is removed from Firefox Stable 84. No version of Firefox will support Flash anymore from that point in time. Mozilla plans to remove Flash support in Firefox 84 but there is a chance that these plans may change. It seems unlikely, considering that Adobe won't distribute security updates anymore for Flash in 2021. Google plans to remove Flash support from Chromium in January 2021 with the release of Chrome 88. The change will affect other Chromium-based web browsers as well. Closing Words Most of the Web has moved on already but there are still sites out there that use Flash. Some may cease to work once Flash is no longer support or updated, others may be updated eventually to newer technologies.

  2. Google to stop indexing Flash for search With browser makers already putting the kibosh on the once-popular multimedia format, Google search is about to deliver something of a coup de grace. Rob van der Meijden (CC0) Google on Monday announced that it will soon stop indexing Flash content for its search engine, effectively throwing an invisibility cloak over that content. "Google Search will stop supporting Flash later this year," Dong-Hwi Lee, an engineering manager, wrote in a post to the company's Webmaster Central blog. "In Web pages that contain Flash content, Google Search will ignore the Flash content. [And] Google Search will stop indexing standalone .swf files." The .swf extension marks Flash animation files. Minus indexing, searches for Flash content will come up empty. If Google doesn't index it, in other words, does it exist? For the vast majority on the web - analytics vendor Net Applications said Google accounted for 75% of global search activity last month - that would be a no. Flash, on the way out Adobe laid out Flash's demise two years ago when it disclosed that it would stop updating and distributing Flash Player at the end of 2020. At the same time, browser makers revealed how they were going to sunset the player software and thus put an end to the multimedia format. Google, for example, disabled Flash by default in Chrome 76, the version that debuted in July. (Users can manually turn on the Flash Player, as can IT admins through group policies.) Come Chrome 87 - currently slated for a December 2020 release - the browser won't run Flash at all. Mozilla's Firefox also recently met a major Flash milestone: As of September's Firefox 69, the browser required the user to approve every request to run Flash. Shutting down Flash indexing will impact only a fraction of all websites: According to technology survey site W3Techs, only 3% of sites now utilize Flash code. That number climbs when more popular sites are polled; 8.4% of the top-1,000 sites, said W3Techs, contain Flash code. Source: Google to stop indexing Flash for search (Computerworld - Gregg Keizer)
  3. A new book highlighting the visual evolution of web design paints a picture of a risk-taking creative culture that hasn’t been quite the same since Steve Jobs stuck a knife into Flash. These days, our web browsers—whether on mobile or desktop—are highly functional and can do all sorts of things that we could only dream of a decade prior. But despite that, one could argue that the web has actually gotten less creative over time, not more. This interpretation of events is a key underpinning of Web Design: The Evolution of the Digital World 1990-Today (Taschen, $50), a new visual-heavy book from author Rob Ford and editor Julius Wiedemann that does something that hasn’t been done on the broader internet in quite a long time: It praises the use of Flash as a creative tool, rather than a bloated malware vessel, and laments the ways that visual convention, technical shifts, and walled gardens have started to rein in much of this unvarnished creativity. This is a realm where small agencies supporting big brands, creative experimenters with nothing to lose, and teenage hobbyists could stand out simply by being willing to try something risky. It was a canvas with a built-in distribution model. What wasn’t to like, besides a whole host of malware? The 640-page book, full of pictures of interactive websites from prior eras, benefits from taking a wide view of the visual culture of the past: Starting at the embryonic stages of the World Wide Web, it follows the art of web design through periods of extreme experimentation on the way to the convention-driven scaffolding we have today. The book makes a compelling case through its general structure that the sweet spot of creative web design came during the late 1990s through the mid-2000s—periods in which major brands were willing to invest a whole lot of money in a website intended for show, not just tell. Ford, who is known for running the long-running Favourite Web Awards (FWA), is very much in the “show” category. In an email interview, Ford listed off a dizzying array of iconic websites, pages that once wowed the broader internet and helped uncover key design mechanisms—for example, Ford says 1998’s EYE4U, an early influence on many Flash developers, “showed us responsive design 15 years before the term was coined,” while sites like 2002’s Who’s We Studios and 2003’s tokyoplastic brought personality to the equation. There was a lot of it because of the artistic influences these creators brought forth. “It’s worth noting how many super-creative talents have a ’background‘ in rave and club culture, whether that be as punters or promoters,” Ford said. These sites, reliant on animation and Flash’s underlying ActionScript language, were the kind that excited creatives, ready to embrace an artistic medium, but frustrated usability experts, who would rail against the way the sites flouted basic convention. If any one website sort of hits these two tensions perfectly, it’s Subservient Chicken, the popular Burger King-produced web interactive which hits right in the middle of the nearly three-decade period covered in this book. At the time of its creation, it was widely discussed and dissected by advertisers who realized that its combination of visuals and ELIZA-style text commands represented something new. Given the move towards chatbots and memetic videos in the years since, it feels downright predictive. “Subservient Chicken gave us something we hadn’t experienced before, that was real time (even though it actually wasn’t real time, it faked it very well) interaction but, more importantly, an emotional ‘live’ personal experience,” Ford notes, adding that it also predicted voice assistants that work in similar ways. But the aggressive creativity offered by Flash eventually would prove impossible to bring to the mobile era in quite the same way, as portability and improved HTML rendering capabilities made it obsolete. Around the time of Steve Jobs’ famous open letter to Adobe, Ford noted that many of the Flash era’s creators “completely moved away from the web and used their talents elsewhere.” There were still some notable HTML5-based creations during this period—including the Arcade Fire’s Google Chrome “experiment” “The Wilderness Downtown,” which Ford calls “the biggest, most influential website in over a decade.” But the social era—particularly Facebook Pages—proved “a final nail in the coffin for web design,” he noted. But all those wild ideas had to go somewhere, and many of them didn’t appear in the App Store. Ford says that while the modern web has largely eschewed the creative risks of the Flash era, it can be found in physical mediums and augmented reality, places where many of the creative explosions that web tools like Flash and HTML5 initially allowed can be furthered and built upon—with many of the same creators behind the initial rise responsible for much of the modern excitement. “The progressive interaction and visual creativity is happening outside of the web browser now,” he explained. “The rise in interactive installations, AR, and experiential in general is where the excitement of the early days is finally happening again.” This book, which hits next month, comes just at a time when Flash—a tool first developed by FutureWave, then improved upon by Macromedia and exploited on a mass scale by Adobe—is about to meet its maker, and the internet has moved past it for perfectly sensible reasons. (Seriously, Flash is hacked all to hell and you probably should avoid it in most circumstances.) While a book may be static rather than interactive, this feels like a fitting coda for a kind of digital creativity that—like Geocities and MySpace pages, multimedia CD-ROMs, and Prodigy graphical interfaces before it—has faded in prominence. But when it was there, we needed it, because of all the creative folks it inspired. “Without the rebels we’d still be looking at static websites with gray text and blue hyperlinks,” Ford said. Source
  4. Where do browsers stand on Flash's impending demise? It's been two years since Adobe announced it would finally kill off its Flash Player; browser makers plan to follow suit on their own timelines. Thinkstock Two years ago, Adobe announced it would finally kill and bury Flash Player, the plug-in that simultaneously launched a million websites and gave security professionals nightmares. The oft-abused technology, equally praised and scorned even when it was at the top of its game, will land in the digital landfill at the end of 2020, when the company said it "will stop updating and distributing the Flash Player." Browser makers quickly chimed in to tell their users how they would sunset Flash, setting up sometimes specific, sometimes vague, timetables for curtailing usage, figuring that going cold turkey would catch site owners unprepared, break the web and turn customers into angry peasants waving torches and pitchforks. Two years after those initial promises of cutting out Flash, where are the browsers? How about a status update? Chrome's this close to turning Flash off by default Starting with Chrome 76, which is the next version slated to ship, Google's browser will disable Flash by default, the state the browser will remain in until all support is yanked in late 2020. With Flash default disabled - Chrome 76 will appear July 30, or in six weeks - sites requiring the plug-in will show the "missing puzzle piece" symbol and the message "Adobe Flash Player is blocked." Users will not be able to run Flash - at all - without going into Settings. Only after re-enabling Flash - Settings->Advanced->Site Settings->Flash->Ask First - will Chrome users be able to run Flash and display Flash content, and then only after their explicit okay. Google is thinking about adding what it called an "infobar" to the top of Chrome with the debut of version 76. If the user manually switches Flash back on through Settings, the infobar will appear, warning that the plug-in won't be supported at all after December 2020. IDG/Gregg Keizer Starting with Chrome 76, users will have to dive into Settings to run Flash after seeing this message on a site. Firefox soon to limit Flash options At this point, Firefox continues to run Flash Player on a per-site basis when a user authorizes the action. And Firefox will remember the site that was authorized if the user checks the box marked "Remember this decision" in the pop-up that appears when giving Flash permission. In early September, Mozilla will take the next step in purging the plug-in. With Firefox 69, scheduled for release Sept. 3, the browser is losing the "Always Activate" option for Flash, meaning that every request to run it must be user approved. From this point forward, the only settings will be "Ask to Activate," the default, and "Never Activate." (Most Firefox users probably didn't know that there was an "Always Activate" setting that let them skip the authorization hassle. It's in Preferences (macOS) and Options (Windows): Extensions & Themes-Plugins->Shockwave Flash->Always Activate.) Still to come for Firefox: Mozilla plans to strip all Flash support from the browser in early 2020. The exception will be Firefox's Extended Support Release (ESR), designed for enterprise settings, which will continue to run the plug-in through 2020. On a related note, Mozilla pointed out that barely half - 50.8% - of all copies of Firefox now have Flash installed. IDG/Gregg Keizer September's Firefox 69 will eliminate the "Always Activate" shortcut, forcing users to approve Flash every time on every site. No exceptions. Edge in turmoil What to say about Microsoft's Edge? Microsoft had a fire-Flash plan two years ago. But then the Redmond, Wash. developer went and decided to bag its version of Edge and instead go full-Chromium, replacing its foundational technology with the same that drives Chrome. While Microsoft didn't necessarily tie itself to Google's Flash timetable when it adopted Chromium, the company is likely to copy the browser big dog. There's no reason not to: "full-Chromium" Edge won't make a difference, one way or the other, to websites still running Flash, not with its very small share. By the time Microsoft has Chromium Edge ready, Chrome will have long put version 76, and its Flash-disabled-by-default behind it. Edge will do the same, whether it launches this year or next. As for Internet Explorer (IE) and the old Edge, in 2017 Microsoft promised that somewhere around mid-to-late 2019, those browsers would default to a disabled Flash state. Users were going to have to manually re-enable Flash in the browsers' settings panels to view content. The change has yet to appear in either browser. (It was unclear when Microsoft would throw the disabled-Flash switch; there was no hint, for example, in the Edge development roadmap.)_ Because Microsoft only upgrades old-Edge when it issues a Windows 10 feature upgrade, the next opportunity for this will be the fall refresh, 1909 in the operating system's yymm notation. Microsoft has hinted that it will retain old-Edge even after full-Chromium Edge ships, so it will have to manage multiple browsers - IE, too, for Windows 10 users and laggards still running Windows 7 - through their Flash end times. IDG/Gregg Keizer The 'old-Edge,' the one powered by Microsoft's own EdgeHTML engine, still lets users run Flash with minimal hassle. But the upcoming 'full-Chromium' Edge will probably mimic Chrome when it debuts. Safari and the no-Flash zone Apple and Flash never much cared for each other. iOS has always been a no-Flash operating system and macOS, formerly OS X, has omitted the Adobe plug-in since 2010, when Cupertino first told users to fetch Flash themselves. (Meanwhile, Chrome, and later, Edge, came with Flash baked in. Chrome dropped that approach in 2016 with version 53. Since then, Flash has been background downloaded the first time the Chrome user calls on it to render content.) "Apple is working with Adobe, industry partners, and developers to complete this transition," a July 2017 post to the WebKit blog asserted. Since then, nothing. Even if a user installs Flash on macOS, Safari still treats it as off by default. And Safari still requires user approval on each site (although the user can tell that site to run Flash every time going forward). In other words, Apple's made no change - and has announced none that it will make - in how Safari deals with Flash. IDG/Gregg Keizer Safari's handling of Flash hasn't changed in the two years since Adobe announced the plug-in's 2020 demise. This is still what users see when they click on content.

  5. Mozilla plans to disable Adobe Flash in Firefox 69 by default according to an updated bug listing on the organization's bug-tracking website. Adobe Flash Player is the last NPAPI plugin that Mozilla Firefox supports; support for other NPAPI plugins like Microsoft Silverlight or Java was removed in Firefox 52. Firefox users could switch to Firefox ESR to continue using NPAPI plugins at the time. Google dropped support for NPAPI plugins in 2015 in Chrome. Firefox continued to support Adobe Flash provided that users installed the software on supported devices, and even considered integrating a Flash replacement called Shumway in Firefox, and later on Pepper Flash, the Flash system that Google used. Google integrated Adobe Flash in the company's Chrome browser in 2010, and Microsoft did the same for its latest browsers. Mozilla, Google, and other browser makers announced that Flash was on its way out, and Adobe decided to retire Flash in 2020. Mozilla's Flash retiring timeline lists two Flash related events for 2019: Early 2019 -- a visible warning displayed to Firefox users about Flash usage. 2019 -- disable Adobe Flash by default in Firefox. Adobe Flash was a major technology for many years but its popularity decreased in recent years. New web standards emerged that replaced Flash functionality for the most part. While there are still sites out there that make use of Flash, Adobe Flash is playing less of an important role on today's Internet than the technology did ten years ago. Flash is problematic from a security and also a stability point of view. Mozilla plans to disable Adobe Flash in Firefox 69. The Firefox release schedule lists September 3, 2019 as the release date for the stable version. Mozilla will disable Flash in Nightly when the browser hits version 69, then in Beta, and finally in Stable. Disabling means that Flash cannot be used anymore by default unless activated again by the user. Firefox won't prompt users anymore to enable Flash when sites require it, but it will be possible to enable Flash in the browser. The next steps in the Flash deprecation happen in 2020 and 2021. Flash support is removed completely from all Firefox versions except for Firefox ESR in 2020. Firefox ESR will continue to support Flash until the end of 2020. When Adobe stops the release of security updates for Flash, all Firefox versions won't load the plugin anymore. Google and other browser makers plan to end Flash support at the same time. Google made Flash usage more annoying already in Chrome 69. Closing Words Adobe Flash won't be supported by major browsers anymore from 2020 onward. Smaller browsers or fork may continue to support Flash so that Flash content that is still available on the Internet remains accessible; the downside to this is that these Flash versions are no longer supported with security or stability updates. It is unclear if organizations like Archive.org will preserve Flash content, e.g. tens of thousand of Flash games and applications, and how they would go about it.

  6. The Flash Preservation project Flashpoint created a solution to play thousands of Flash games on Windows and Linux machines after Flash's retirement. Adobe Flash will be retired in 2020 and browser makers such as Google, Mozilla or Microsoft started to phase out Flash support already in the browsers they create. Think of Flash what you want but the technology was used to create a number of impressive games. Problem is, if no modern browser supports Flash, no one can play those games anymore unless they use browsers that still support it or find other ways to preserve the games and play them. Even if browsers still support Flash, Flash itself will not be updated anymore and any security vulnerability found will remain unpatched. It is possible that Flash content will be removed on many sites once Flash is gone for good; this would mean that many Flash games would be lost forever. The Flash Games preservation project The Flash Games preservation project is an attempt to preserve Flash games so that they remain available and playable. The project is huge; the current full distribution of Flashpoint has a size of 31 Gigabytes. You can download a smaller collection with a size of just 2.2 Gigabytes if you prefer. The main difference between the two is that Infinity is configured to download Flash games that you select from Archive.org. The upside to this is that you won't have to download more than 30 Gigabytes of Flash files directly before you can start playing games. The main downside is that it takes longer on first start to play games as they have to be downloaded first to the local system. Also, some games won't work with Infinity and are not displayed because of this. The project maintains a Game Master List that is updated regularly. The current full version comes with more than 4000 games including many classic games. The developer has more than 2 Terabyte of Flash dumps on Google Drive from sites such as Gamepilot, JayIsGames, Newsgrounds, Kongregate, Armorgames, or NotDoppler. Some Flash games can be saved to the local system and run from there without any issues provided that a browser or the standalone Adobe Flash projector is used for that. Others won't run because they rely on servers or have DRM baked into them which prevents local playback without modification. The project uses the interface of LaunchBox and Apache web server capabilities to provide access to Flash games on Windows. The launcher displays the list of games that are available, and users may click on any to look them up, and on play to start the game locally. The distribution takes care of DRM, sitelocked games, games that have server requirements, and games that require external files. The developer and volunteers test games, download required external components, and hack the games if required so that they will run on the local system. Flashpoint requires Windows 7 or newer versions of Windows. It does require the .NET Framework 4.7 and a Visual C++ redistributable. You find copies of those in the arcade folder after you have unpacked the package on the local system. Linux users may run Flashpoint as well. Instructions are found in the readme.txt file that is included in the distribution. How Flashpoint works Flashpoint changes the system proxy while it is running; this is required to get games to run that are locked, with DRM, or have dependencies that are not locally available. You can run the custom redirector or the Fiddler redirector. The main difference between the two is that Fiddler is more reliable but also more interfering with network traffic while Flashpoint is running. The developer suggests that no mission critical networking operations are run while Flashpoint is running. Note that this will do certain things to your network traffic while Flashpoint is open, and while we maintain that we do not use this proxy or your network traffic for any kind of nefarious purpose, and we do believe that network traffic should remain relatively normal while Flashpoint is open, we do recommend that you do not do any sort of 'mission critical' networking while you're running Flashpoint, and if you do use a system proxy on the computer you plan to use Flashpoint on, we recommend making a copy of your settings somewhere in case something goes wrong. The way things are set up can be cause for concern. If you are concerned, consider running Flashpoint in a virtual machine on the system or a spare PC if you have one. Games are listed with screenshots and information; very useful. A quick test of the Infinity edition was completely positive. I played several games, and while it took a while before downloads completed, playing them worked fine and without any issues. Closing Words With hundreds of thousands of Flash games around on the Internet, and 2 Terabyte of data sitting on the author's Google Drive account, it is clear that Flashpoint is a massive project that will take a long time before the majority of games have been included. The project offers an excellent option for gamers to play classic Flash games even after the technology has been put to rest finally. Now You: Do you play online games? Source
  7. Adobe Flash Player, Connect, and Dreamweaver are the focus of this month's patch cycle. Adobe has patched a set of critical vulnerabilities which can lead to remote code execution, information leaks, and file deletion. On Tuesday, the tech giant's security advisory noted that the vulnerabilities impact Adobe Flash Player, Adobe Connect, and Adobe Dreamweaver CC. Two vulnerabilities which relate to Flash, a use-after-free flaw (CVE-2018-4919) and type confusion bug (CVE-2018-4920), are critical vulnerabilities which impact Adobe Flash Player 28.0.0.161 and earlier on the Windows, Macintosh, Linux and Chrome OS platforms. Adobe says that successful exploitation may lead to arbitrary code execution in the context of current users. "This patch remediates two critical vulnerabilities and should be prioritized for workstation-type devices," said Jimmy Graham, Qualys Director of Product Management. "There are currently no active attacks against these vulnerabilities." Adobe also addressed two vulnerabilities in Adobe Connect. The first security flaw, CVE-2018-4923, is an OS Command Injection bug which can lead to arbitrary file deletion. The second vulnerability, CVE-2018-4921, is an error which causes unrestricted SWF file uploads and may lead to information disclosure. The final bug, CVE-2018-4924, is a critical OS Command Injection flaw in Adobe Dreamweaver CC. If successfully exploited, attackers can execute arbitrary code. Adobe thanked Yuki Chen of Qihoo 360 Vulcan Team working alongside the Chromium Vulnerability Rewards Program and independent researchers Rgod and Ciaran McNally for reporting the issues. The company recommends that users update their software versions immediately to stay protected. In February, Adobe addressed a total of 41 vulnerabilities across Adobe Acrobat and Reader. In total, 17 of which were considered critical security flaws and could be exploited by attackers to perform the remote execution of code. Source
  8. Adobe announced today that it plans to retire Adobe Flash in December 2020 when it will stop updating and distributing Flash. The company suggests that developers switch from using Flash to modern web technologies such as HMTL5, WebGL or WebAssembly. Adobe will support Flash "on a number of major" operating systems and browsers that support Flash currently. This includes 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows XP to 10, Mac OS X 10.9 or later, and packages for Linux. As far as browsers are concerned, Internet Explorer, Edge, Firefox, Chrome and Opera are supported on Windows. On Mac OS X, the browsers are Safari, Firefox, Chrome and Opera, and on Linux, Firefox and Chrome are supported. The reason that Adobe gives for ending Flash support is that web technology has matured and support many of the capabilities and functionalities that plugins introduced to the browsing world. Mozilla, Microsoft, Google and Facebook have published announcements of their own highlighting the End of Life for Flash. Mozilla updated its plugin roadmap for Firefox and adjusted it based on Adobe's end of support announcement. 2018 Second Half -- Firefox users have to enable Flash on each session they want to use Flash. 2019 Early -- Firefox will display a visible warning to users if a site uses Flash. 2019 -- Flash is disabled by default. Users won't be prompted anymore to enable Flash, but Flash may still be activated on certain sites by users. 2020-- Flash support is removed from Firefox. Firefox ESR continues to support Flash until the end of 2020. 2021 -- Firefox won't load the Flash plugin anymore when Adobe stops shipping security updates for Flash in December 2020 Microsoft announced on the Microsoft Edge development blog how it plans to retire Adobe Flash in company products 2018 -- Microsoft Edge requires users to enable Flash for each session individually. Internet Explorer continues to allow Flash. 2019 mid to late -- Flash is disabled by default in Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer. Users have options to re-enable Flash. 2020 end -- Adobe Flash is removed from Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer. Flash cannot be run anymore. Google announced on the company blog that Flash will be retired in Google Chrome as well.The company did not publish a roadmap but stated that it will remove Flash completely from Google Chrome toward the end of 2020. https://www.ghacks.net/2017/07/25/adobe-retires-flash-in-december-2020/
  9. This morning, Adobe announced its roadmap to stop supporting Flash at the end of 2020. Working with Adobe and other browser vendors, Mozilla has prepared a roadmap for Flash support in Firefox, and guides for site authors to make their final transition away from Flash technology. By managing this transition carefully, announcing it years in advance, and providing options for transition, Mozilla will help make the web faster, safer, and better for everyone. To provide guidance for site authors and users that continue to rely on Flash, Mozilla has updated its published roadmap for Flash in Firefox. Starting next month, users will choose which websites are able to run the Flash plugin. Flash will be disabled by default for most users in 2019, and only users running the Firefox Extended Support Release (ESR) will be able to continue using Flash through the final end-of-life at the end of 2020. In order to preserve user security, once Flash is no longer supported by Adobe security patches, no version of Firefox will load the plugin. As part of improving Firefox performance and security this year, Firefox users will choose which sites may run the Flash plugin. This choice will give users the ability to keep using legacy sites that require Flash, while letting modern sites shine with blazingly fast HTML speed. This change was announced last year and will ship in Firefox next month. Firefox users will still have the opportunity to enable Flash on specific sites that require it. It is possible to test this behavior today by downloading Firefox beta and changing the Flash setting in the Firefox Add-ons manager. Because each browser implements this feature slightly differently, MDN Web Docs lists the differences in Flash activation among the major browsers as a guide for authors. The Spellstone game has already migrated from Flash to HTML. Over the years, Flash has helped bring the Web to greatness with innovations in media and animation, which ultimately have been added to the core web platform. The end of Flash offers an opportunity to bring legacy design and content in the Flash format into an new era using HTML and web technologies. If you are a site author currently using Flash to implement video, games, chat, file upload or clipboard access on your site, the web platform now has fast, secure, and reliable features which can do all of these tasks. Browser makers have prepared a guide to help website authors transition away from Flash to the open web. This transition guide, published through MDN Web Docs, provides documentation and links to open web APIs, libraries, and frameworks to help make updating to the web platform a great experience. HTML is being rapidly adopted for web games. Image provided courtesy of Kongregate. Game developers that formerly built games for Flash are quickly switching to HTML and seeing great results. Last week, Kongregate published data about the transition to HTML and the trends in game technologies used on their web gaming platform. Mozilla works closely with games publishers and developers to advance the state of games on the Web, and continues to develop technologies such as WebAssembly which allow developers to achieve near-native performance. For more information about building great web games, see MDN Web Docs. This year, Firefox will become the fastest it has ever been. Reducing Flash usage now is an important part of making the web and Firefox better together, and will support the end of Flash in 2019 and 2020. The security and privacy features users have come to expect, combined with a new interface and added functionality, will streamline and modernize the browser experience for Firefox users.

    FlashBoot 2.2e Portable

    FlashBoot 2.2e Portable FlashBoot is a tool to make USB disks bootable. Its primary focus is USB Flash disks, but other types of USB devices are supported as well. Making disk bootable involves formatting and copying operating system files to it. Different operating systems are supported: Windows 7/Vista, Windows XP, SysLinux-based disks, GRUB4DOS disks, Linux kernel etc. You may create blank bootable USB flash with minimal set of system files and then manually tune it for your needs, or convert a full-featured bootable CD-ROM or floppy disk to bootable USB Flash keeping all functionality. FlashBoot can either format physical disk or write an image file. So you may create customized USB disk manually or with another tool and use FlashBoot to create image out of it and redistribute it in local network or online. Why do you might want to use bootable USB flash disks? Unlike the most bootable medias, bootable USB Flash keys are very handy: compared to floppies, they have much bigger size, speed and reliability, compared to CD/DVD discs, they are random write access devices, so you can backup your data to the same media where you booted from, without need to reformat (reburn) the entire media. Again, the cost per gigabyte for them continues to cut down, unlike CD/DVD discs. Bootable USB flash disks are especially useful with netbooks like ASUS Eee PC which does not have builtin CD/DVD drive or an opportunity to install one. On the other hand, buying external CD/DVD drive for netbook is not a truly wise choice because it will be shifted out of use just after Windows is installed, thanks to widespread use of DVD image files and modern hard disk capacities. Bootable USB flash disks are useful as boot devices on the "big" desktop PCs too, unlike CD/DVD discs they do not have sensible surface you could scratch, thus more reliable (especially when holding your backup data). If your sysadmin at work restricts PC to not to have CD/DVD drives, you still can boot from USB flash disk. Or if your home PC has CD/DVD drive failed, you can do it too. There are some mobility considerations as well. If your laptop has a bootable CD/DVD drive, you can't work with it for a long time: boot device is accessed quite often, and battery power is obviously not enough to supply laser for a long time. With bootable USB Flash disk, you don't have to obey a CD/DVD size limit of 700 or 4700 MB. You can buy a big or a small USB disk depending on your needs. Just after boot, on every PC, you may save your files to the same boot device, or restore them back. There's no need to reformat (reburn) the boot disk, you just copy files and folders, and there's no need for extra hardware for such operations. Of course you may do some things you can't do under your OS: copy/modify system files (they are busy when OS is running), reinstall OS, repartition your main hard disk etc. Website: http://www.prime-expert.com OS: Windows XP / Vista / 7 / 8 Language: Eng Medicine: Serial - iOTA Size: 18,39 Mb.

    Iron Portable Plugins

    Wanted to share my plugins for IronPortable. - Silverlight v5.1.20913.0 - Flash v12.0.0.44 - Sumatra PDF v2.4 plugin for viewing PDF files in Iron Browser. * all are compressed w/UPX and verified working.How to use: Copy desired plugin into IronPortable > Data > Plugins. (while IronPortable is not running) Note: Silverlight leaves trash behind in the registry, and file-system. - edit the launcher so it knows to clean up after Silverlight. Updating PAF manually: PortableApps.com is usually very slow when it comes to updates.. You can manually update yourself.. Check @ SRWare Iron's Forums.. They usually post an update when Chrome is updated.. Download the portable ZIP file and simply copy/replace in IronPortable > App directory. Obviously.. do it when IronPortable is not running, and Dictionaries & Extensions folders can be left out. FYI: the latest update 32.0.1750.1 is dramatically different. They included Chrome.exe & Iron.exe .. According to Iron's developers.. Iron.exe is problematic with some Plugins/Extensions.. So they recommend launching with Chrome.exe .. So you'll have to edit PAF's launcher file like so: [Launch]ProgramExecutable=Iron\Chrome.exe================================================================ EDIT: since this has evolved into everything SRWare Iron.. Here's the WinApp2.ini for CCleaner so it shows up.. obvsiously.. edit the locations to your location. * Optionally, I also included Silverlight, AdobeFlash/Macromedia..
