How Much Will We Miss Flash?
Whilst there are many issues that divide the tech community, one subject has united friends and foes over the years - the vitriolic and absolute hatred directed towards Flash. Not only is the software notoriously buggy and and prone to error, it also represents an open back door for hackers. With that being said, when it was announced that Adobe's problematic and controversial software was officially being killed off in 2020, the collective fist-pumps of internet users and developers could be heard echoing throughout cyberspace. However, when Adobe finally lay Flash to rest in 2020, will any of us actually miss it?
Flash Brought Internet Gaming Into The 21st Century
In its formative years, Flash allowed users to run games and in the early to mid-2000's, there were a plethora of sites hosting huge catalogues of free flash games - some of those free sites such as Kongregate and Newgrounds still exist and run on flash software. Similarly, other gaming websites such as online casinos are now entirely flash-based, increasing the quality of graphics and range of games available on the platform - but where can you find the best casino software? Is it in downloadable software or Flash-based sites? Well, specialist software companies such as Microgaming and Playtech dominate the casino industry with innovative progressive slot games such as Mega Moolah, which remains the most successful online casino game of all time, and they use Flash.
