Now HTML5 is here and we can see the advantages. Because it is natively supported by web browsers, it does not require the user to download any plugins or players to run Rich Internet Applications. It’s open source, not requiring the purchase of Adobe Flash products for website design. It’s said to run 58% faster than Flash on Linux and the Mac OS. It is compatible with touch screens and runs smooth on mobile devices and laptops without causing the device to overheat.

Just one day after Adobe released its monthly security patches for various software including Flash Player, the company confirmed a major security vulnerability that affects all versions of Flash for Windows, Mac and Linux computers. You read that correctly… all versions. Adobe said it has been made aware that this vulnerability is being used by hackers to attack users, though it says the attacks are limited and targeted. Using the exploit, an attacker can crash a target PC or even take complete control of the computer.

Twitch is ditching Flash. The first step is a redesign of its video player controls, swapping out the old Flash model for shiny, new HTML5 and Javascript controls. Twitch videos are still Flash-based for now, but this is all in preparation for a full HTML5 player. The new controls will be rolled out gradually to all users, and you'll notice them on channel pages first.

Ubuntu PC maker System76 will stop installing Adobe Flash on its laptops and desktops, saying the software is too dangerous and is no longer necessary."In 2007 System76 was granted a license from Adobe to pre-install Flash on all our laptops and desktops," the company said in a blog post yesterday. "In terms of making a great first impression with our customers, especially those new to Ubuntu, this was an important detail."

ADOBE FLASH—THAT INSECURE, ubiquitous resource hog everyone hates to need—is under siege, again, and hopefully for the last time. The latest calls for its retirement come from some of the Internet’s most powerful players, but if the combined clattering of Facebook, Firefox, and a legion of unsatisfied users isn’t enough finally to put it in the ground, scroll down to see how to axe it from your devices yourself.
