Another nail in the lid of the coffin Adobe Flash is preparing to hammer Apple. Many technology companies have already abandoned the use of this plugin, which causes a lot of complaints because of its gluttony and security problems. Now Apple is joining them.
In particular, the latest release of the Safari Technology Preview browser has removed support for Adobe Flash. Thus, after the mandatory stage of testing the browser, support for this plugin will be removed from the public version of the application. However, there is no information yet exactly when the final version of Safari will be released without Adobe Flash support.
Note, Apple was one of the first technology companies to ostracize this problematic plugin. Support for Flash on iOS stopped back in 2007. Following it, other companies gradually began to abandon Adobe Flash, including Google, Facebook, Microsoft and Mozilla. In 2017, Adobe itself announced that it plans to completely stop developing and supporting Flash during 2020. And now we should expect that support for Adobe Flash in Safari in the same year will cease at the initiative of Apple.
