    I just wish it was sooner, like 3 months instead of 3 years

    Much like Windows XP, Gateway 3DS, and that one guy still using RXTools, there are still holdouts with Flash installed...my boyfriend unfortunately being one of them.

    For me, they can kill flash right now. Don't use it anymore, since HTML5 became the standard for web multimedia.

    Also, flash is the most used framework when we talk about absolutely undesired ads. I would like that those ads companies could be sued for ruining my browsing experience on my own devices, kinda like hacking if you ask me.

    That's why I stopped visiting hackinformer.

    I know it's dumb, but this is the one reason I keep Flash Player installed, even on my not-even-a-week-old Linux Mint 18.2 installation.

    HTML 5/5.1 Player is being implemented everywhere. Only issue is that People still use Flash to create online based games and such.

    I feel like the 3 year countdown is to give porn sites time to change to HTML5. I think a year or so ago, there was a Firefox update that automatically disabled Flash and thus certain sites I go to a lot (ahem, tubes) didn't have a flash alternative. This gives me 3 years to play the flash game adaptation of The Room, something I barely played.

    For those of you that use Firefox you can install Shumway which will render Flash objects with HTML5.
