why is flash on its way out?

there was recently a horrible, horrible bug found in flash that can be exploited to allow, like, some random flash application you can open in a browser to execute code on your system. forcing everyone to update their flash browser is a shitty thing to have to do, especially after we’ve been doing that for the last decade

this is the nail in the coffin for flash as mozilla doesn’t want people using firefox to get fucked, so they blocked flash outright in firefox and will probably keep it that way until the bug gets fixed

flash sucks horrifically and the world is moving to HTML5 which also sucks horrifically
