The reports of the death of Flash on the mobile web have not been greatly exaggerated.

Good, hopefully we'll get more websites shifting to HTML5, it's a lot better, a hell of a lot more secure too.

Flash, don't let the door hit you on the way out. Good riddance.

RIP Flash

I most certainly won't miss it once websites finally get around to updating their non-mobile websites (I'm looking at you STEAM with your "you need a specific flash version" message for all of your game trailer vids!!! ).

Flash is specifically annoying in that the option to turn off auto updates / keep a background client running only appears to "stick" until you reboot the PC. I don't know how many times I've tried to turn off / remove the service and it keeps coming back like a bad penny......

The 'Jobs' was right I guess?

This is going to cause a massive headache for a lot of site designers. A lot of sites are designed around flash even this site included and a lot of people will have to change from flash to HTML 5 and lets see how well that works.

I personally hate flash but I don't think this is going to bode well.

Yep Flash apk packages will be sideloaded for ages.
