NUM­BER OF WEB­SITES STILL US­ING FLASH PLAYER In July 2017, Adobe of­fi­cially an­nounced that it will be re­tir­ing its Flash tech­nol­ogy by 2020, but it may be gone well be­fore then, with less than 5% of web­sites world­wide still run­ning the me­dia tech. Javascript is the pre­ferred al­ter­na­tive for cre­at­ing in-browser fea­tures these days, and pop­u­lar browsers Chrome and Fire­fox are al­ready phas­ing out sup­port for Flash. The tech­nol­ogy’s last bas­tion is likely to be in dor­mant and aban­doned web­sites, where it will stag­nate, await­ing its of­fi­cial im­pend­ing doom.
