Flash Player è morto !

Occupy Flash - Uninstall Flash plug-inFlash Player è morto ! Queste le parole con cui inizia il “Manifesto” pubblicato sul sito Occupy Flash, il movimento che si pone l’obiettivo di liberare anche il mondo dei browser desktop dal plug-in Flash Player ed agevolare (accelerare) il passaggio ad HTML5.Flash Player is dead. Its time has passed. It’s buggy. It crashes a lot. It requires constant security updates. It doesn’t work on most mobile devices. It’s a fossil, left over from the era of closed standards and unilateral corporate control of web technology. Websites that rely on Flash present a completely inconsistent (and often unusable) experience for fast-growing percentage of the users who don’t use a desktop browser. It introduces some scary security and privacy issues by way of Flash cookies“, e ancora: “Flash makes the web less accessible. At this point, it’s holding back the web“. L’obiettivo è quello di far disinstallare il plug-in per Flash dai browser desktop di tutto il mondo: “Our goal: To get the world to uninstall the Flash Player plugin from their desktop browsers“.
