Flash Player, which we used to have to install on your computer to view games, animations and more content that we encountered on many sites, is being deprecated by the big tech giants.

Ending support for Flash player was first announced by Internet browser developers in 2017. In today’s internet world, it is very inadequate in terms of performance and some of the problems it poses in terms of security have become a sufficient reason not to use Flash today. HTML5, which replaces Flash, now offers a faster and safer internet experience for users with innovations compared to flash, a technology that has expired.

Firefox completely ends its support

Adobe announced 3 years ago that support for Flash player would be discontinued. Firefox will completely terminate support for Flash Player with the major Firefox 85 update, which will be released on January 26, 2021. After this date, Firefox users will not be able to run any Flash-supported content in their browser.

Developers of other browsers will also soon cut support

Adobe’s support for the discontinued Flash Player will cease completely by December 31, 2020. Developers of browsers such as Chrome and Opera have also not removed Flash from browsers for now, but have restricted its operation. To run content that uses Flash, you need to make some adjustments to the browser. It is believed that the developers of these browsers will also completely remove support for Flash Player with updates that they will soon release.
