Flash is dying... finally.

Recommended Posts

If you are using Flash on any of your websites, you better look at making some changes right away. I would imagine Firefox makes up a significant portion of web traffic on most sites. Only a matter of time I would say until Chrome and IE follow suit. Okay, maybe not IE. They'll probably wait another 10 years.

Web Hosting

That's potential for generating clients in multiple ways. I know a bunch of photographer sites use Flash. Now there's strong brands to back up the sales pitch (Firefox, Facebook).

I have a client who is developing their entire ecommerce site on Flash. Absolutely ridiculous. Literally spent thousands upon thousands on it. I told her it was the wrong choice over a year ago but hey, I'm not in charge of dev. This may give her a heart attack.

Interesting...I remember when the Fury Road movie came out last year, and I went to imdb's page for it, there was an awesome little "crash and burn" animation that burst through the top right side of the screen.

 

"Cool--I wonder how they did that?" I asked.

 

Flash.

 

So....if not Flash, for those of us who aren't programmers, what app is the next standard as it goes the way of the VHS tape?
