    Adobe confirms it won't support Flash on Android 4.1, stops new Flash installs.

    Are we going back in time? We're talking about pre Froyo 2.2 where there was no flash integration for Android web browsers. Remember how much that upset people who weren't receiving the Froyo updates for their device? It was mainly because of this one point.

    Well we're about to go back into that time with Jellybean 4.1. This was one major thing that people felt set aside Android devices from the iPad and iPhones.

    New technologies are being developed/integrated (HTML 5), but will that create a period of time where our newer Android devices won't have as good of a web experience as they did from Froyo (2.2) to Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0)?

    Here's a wiki entry for HTML 5...

    Comparison of HTML5 and Flash
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    HTML5 can be used as an alternative to Adobe Flash.[1] Both include features for playing audio and video within web pages, and using integrated SVG, vector graphics are possible with both.

    A common misconception is that HTML5 can provide animation and interactivity within web pages, which is untrue.[2] Either JavaScript or CSS 3 is necessary for animating HTML elements. Animation using JavaScript is also possible with HTML 4.
    However here are some startling numbers about flash from Wiki...

    Website adoption

    According to Adobe,


    • 85% of the most-visited web sites use Flash,
    • 75% of web video is viewed using the Flash Player,
    • 98% of enterprises rely on the Flash Player, and
    • 70% of web games are made in Flash.[9]
    You decide. Should they have stopped their support? Vote in our poll.

    Adobe confirms it won't support Flash on Android 4.1, stops new Flash installs from Google Play on August 15th

    Adobe was very public about
    dropping mobile Flash


    last fall. In case that wasn't clear enough, the developer just drew a line in the sand:
    Android 4.1


    doesn't, and won't ever, get certification for Flash. The company is stopping short of saying that Flash won't run, but it's evident that Adobe won't help you if the web browser plugin doesn't install (or breaks in spectacular fashion) on that
    Nexus 7


    . Just to underscore the point, the firm is also halting new installations of Flash from Google Play as of August 15th. Security updates and other vital patches will continue on for existing users. Any fresh downloads after that fateful day, however, will have to come from Adobe's mausoleum for old versions. The company had already said that
    HTML5 was the way forward


    on phones and tablets -- now we know just how quickly it's backing up that claim.

    Where is the Poll? I think that Apple had made secret deal with Adobe to cut off the Android, to help Apple.

    It should be at the top of the thread. If you're viewing the article, that might be a reason you can't see it.
