WHAT’S THE MEANING?
By definition, Adobe Flash Player is a software that is used to stream and view certain multimedia files such as videos, audio, and Rich Internet Applications (RIA) on a computer as it runs from a web browser as a plug-in, or on supported mobile devices. It was originally created by Macromedia but credits have always been given to Adobe as it was developed and widely distributed by Adobe Systems since the acquisition.
DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that Adobe has officially ended its development of Flash for all mobile devices? It is no surprise the widely used technology for delivering multimedia files on the Internet has officially come to an end as HTML 5 finds its footing on major mobile devices. It is interesting to consider that a number of gaming and video sites still utilize Flash and according to sources, Adobe will not cut its support to the technology until 2020 and it rather encourages web developers to migrate any Flash content to open standards. On a related note, did you know that Apple users have almost never experienced utilizing Flash on their iOS devices? In fact, Apple has never supported Flash for the iPad. According to sources, Steve Jobs did not want to utilize it because he strongly claims that the Flash’s poor battery performance and some bugs could cause the device to crash.
