Still have Flash On Your Site? Fewer and Fewer People Can See It!

Every day more and more browsers block Adobe Flash

Every day more and more browsers block Adobe Flash

Adobe® Flash has been dying for years. Apple’s refusal to support it on IOS. People joke (and often worry) about Adobe’s frequent, sometimes daily “security updates.”   And it’s recently come to light that major companies and even governments have been using undisclosed exploits in Flash to spy on anyone they might not like!

Now, as WordPress SEO guru 

Flash is dead, bye bye!

Firefox is now blocking Flash by default. Flash was always a stupid idea, but in the off chance that you’re still using it on your site, you probably should stop for real now. I mean, we have animated GIFs for annoying content!

Do you still have Flash on your site? It might just be driving your old video player. It might be running an old slideshow. If your site’s old enough it might even be driving your entire website!

Used to be if you wanted visually interesting content on your website you had to use Flash.  But there have been native HTML solutions for years. Times change.  Time to upgrade.

David Innes,

I've been building and maintaining websites since 1997 and building and supporting similar hypertext-driven software since 1987. I've done maintenance, support, and maintenance for physical and digital systems since 1981. And no, I still haven't seen it all but by now I usually know where to look. More about David Innes...
