This high-profile banning of Flash on Firefox has reopened the conversion on the future of Flash. And a lot of high profile people have gotten in on the act – even as far back as 2010. And yet, Flash is still here.

 

As it turns out, a number of cyber-criminals were using bugs in Flash to steal the data of users. Mozilla refused to support Flash until Adobe fixed the issues; which it did do. Before it was patched, a security breach of a surveillance software firm named Hacking Team highlighted the risks of Flash. These cyber-criminals adapted 3 unpatched exploits for their own hacking uses.

 

Recently, Mozilla announced that Flash had been blocked on their Firefox web browser. There was a very good reason behind why Mozilla, the developer behind Firefox, had chosen to block Adobe’s Flash software on all versions of their web browser.

 

But what exactly is it about Adobe’s Flash that makes it a poor web design choice, and why are people sounding the death knell for Flash in 2015 of all years?

 

Flash has played an important role in the rise of the internet, but it is now a bad choice for any modern web design, and can be detrimental to your search engine optimisation (SEO). On the websites of yesteryear, you would commonly come across animations and videos making use of Flash. Nowadays however, it’s considered a poor choice, and web designers will opt for alternative methods.
