Adobe to Stop Development of Flash for Mobile

Adobe will not be supporting Flash for mobile anymore.

This was inadvertently revealed through a memo sent to analysts. The memo was acquired by ZDNet. In the memo, Adobe mentioned that development of Flash for mobile browsers will be effectively stopped and all efforts will be refocused on developing for HTML 5. The rumor became an actual reality when Adobe officially announced that it will indeed stop development of Flash for mobile devices saying that moving forward, HTML 5 is the best solution for “creating and deploying content” across different mobile platforms.

Steve Jobs had been championing HTML 5 over Adobe Flash, and he has famously refused to include Flash support for any of the iOS devices, saying that the future is in HTML 5. The new technology allows for content to show the same content regardless of the browser or the operating system, which is the same thing that Flash does, but it will not rely on any kind of proprietary technology to do this, which is the case with Flash (you need to download a plugin for Flash to work).

Adobe looks like it has finally acknowledged what Jobs has been saying all along. By removing support for Flash for mobile, the inevitable question now comes out – are the days of Flash for the PC also numbered? The signs are pointing to the demise of Flash on the PC. Apple already doesn’t include Flash as a default installation on its computers, and it owns five percent of the global PC market share. Microsoft, which owns the overwhelming majority of PCs worldwide with its Windows operating system, has announced that it too will not include Flash as a default install for its upcoming Windows 8 operating system.
