It’s the last day of the year which means it’s time to say goodbye to the much-maligned (some might say malignant) Adobe Flash which is officially obsolete on modern browsers. Adobe has finally ceased support for Flash and is informing users of the platform’s demise.
Chromium-based browsers such as Chrome and Edge include native Flash support which requires Google and Microsoft to issue an update to remove it. If you are running a browser that required the installation of Flash via a plugin then you’ll see a pop-up every week giving you the option of ‘remind me later’ or to ‘uninstall’ which will then begin the uninstall process.
