Adobe's non-free technology Flash is dying a slow death. The company earlier announced that they will discontinue Flash for Android devices. Now, the company has posted that there won't be any updates of Flash Player for mobile browsers. Adobe Flash will no longer be available in Google Play Store after August 15.
Adobe said in a blog post, "Beginning August 15th we will use the configuration settings in the Google Play Store to limit continued access to Flash Player updates to only those devices that have Flash Player already installed. Devices that do not have Flash Player already installed are increasingly likely to be incompatible with Flash Player and will no longer be able to install it from the Google Play Store after August 15th."
There won't be any Adobe Flash for the newly announced Jelly Bean or Android 4.1. If you are upgrading your device from Android 4.0 to 4.1, it is heavily recommended that you should uninstall Flash Player as it may exhibit unpredictable behavior.
Apple's iOS already doesn't support Adobe Flash. Apple should get the credit for bringing an end to this non-free and often compromising technology. Microsoft's Windows on the other hand is totally incapable of bringing new innovations or terminate obsolete technologies such as Adobe Flash. Windows will continue to support this insecure technology.
