Selamat Tinggal Flash

Saya lupa kapan terakhir kali mengakses situs yang masih menggunakan teknologi Adobe Flash Player. Saya pikir teknologi ini sudah ditinggalkan cukup lama. Peramban Google Chrome juga sudah mengucapkan selamat tinggal kepada Flash pada pertengahan 2017 setelah Adobe — sebagai perusahaan pengembangnya — juga memutuskan untuk menghentikan dukungan pengembangan dan distribusi Adobe Flash Player di akhir tahun 2020.

Given this progress, and in collaboration with several of our technology partners — including AppleFacebookGoogleMicrosoft and Mozilla — Adobe is planning to end-of-life Flash. Specifically, we will stop updating and distributing the Flash Player at the end of 2020 and encourage content creators to migrate any existing Flash content to these new open formats.

Ternyata beberapa waktu lalu, ada situs yang masih membutuhkan Adobe Flash Player di halaman otentikasinya. Beruntung, masih bisa instal Flash dan melakukan otentikasi.

  • Engage users with highly innovative and cinematic experiences using custom effects and filters created with Adobe Pixel Bender and native 3D effects. Innovate with text to create new types of publications using an advanced text engine, typographic control, and new layout options.
