Goodbye Flash and Good Riddance

Adobe announced today that Adobe Flash is now Adobe Animate:

For nearly two decades, Flash Professional has been the standard for producing rich animations on the web. Because of the emergence of HTML5 and demand for animations that leverage web standards, we completely rewrote the tool over the past few years to incorporate native HTML5 Canvas and WebGL support.

They saw the writing on the wall and I think Apple (and the late Steve Jobs) had something to do with this, since Apple devices don’t include support for Adobe Flash.

Flash served a purpose, but was abused on the Web. I for one, am glad to see it go away
