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.

Adobe’s Flash, hated the world over for slowing down computers, containing more holes in security than swiss cheese and stubbornly being the video carrier of choice until recently, is dying.

Ugh. Flash. The technology that just about everyone hates and that still just won’t die. While Flash is in its last throes out now that YouTube, Twitch and Mozilla’s Firefox browser have moved away from it, plenty of other websites still use it to deliver both video and games, among other things. Now a new movement called Occupy Flash has started up to get web users to give Flash one final big push over the cliff by uninstalling it on their computer or disabling it in their browsers.

Flash Player is dead. Its time has passed. It's buggy. It crashes a lot. It requires constant security updates. It doesn't work on most mobile devices. It's a fossil, left over from the era of closed standards and unilateral corporate control of web technology. Websites that rely on Flash present a completely inconsistent (and often unusable) experience for fast-growing percentage of the users who don't use a desktop browser. It introduces some scary security and privacy issues by way of Flash cookies.

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."

Then on Tuesday, YouTube – the biggest provider of Flash video ever – announced that it would stop serving its videos using the plugin for anyone visiting the site in a modern browser.
