Adobe Flash will take its place on the dusty shelves of technology history later this year. Microsoft also reminded once again that the Edge browser’s support for Adobe Flash will end.
Adobe Flash, which left its mark on the internet for a while, has fallen out of favor in recent years. As of the end of this year, support for Adobe Flash will end. Technology giants also warn their customers in this regard.
Microsoft also announced that it will end support for Adobe Flash at the end of this year, as long awaited. The company has released another reminder for its customers these days as we enter the last four months of the year.
Reminder with the update from Microsoft
Although last year it announced that it would bid farewell to Adobe Flash and later changed its decision, Microsoft is very determined this year. It shows this with the latest update. Since Adobe announced that it was finishing Flash in 2017, browsers have been pulling their support by one by one.
Microsoft has three different internet browsers currently in use on the market. These include Internet Explorer 11, Edge Legacy, and Edge Chromium. People who need to use Flash after 2020 will need to install separate plugins. These add-ons will not be supported by Microsoft, they will be third party products.
There will be no Adobe in 2021
In early 2021, the “Update to remove Adobe Flash Player” option will be available as an option in all Microsoft browsers supported by Windows. Later this option will be made recommended.
Microsoft has added this feature to its Update Catalog so that those who want to try this feature in advance can get it in the autumn updates. Next summer, all APIs, group rules and interfaces for all Flash will be removed from Edge Legacy and Internet Explorer 11.
Adobe Flash, which has become inextricable with the security problems it creates, has been offered as standard in modern browsers for a while. So if you have not had a Flash-based problem recently, it is quite possible that you will not be affected by these updates in any way. It looks like we will say goodbye to Flash in three years after being terminated by its manufacturer.
