Can we just leave Flash to die and move on to HTML5? Youtube has converted, but most other sites - like Flash game sites - still only use Flash. Adobe themselves are practically forcing people to stop using Flash themselves - dropping Linux support, removing the Flash app for Android etc. It seems that even Adobe want to get rid of this aging technology!

'four memory corruption vulnerabilities, an integer overflow vulnerability, and a cross-domain information leakage issue'..... I only went to the GP for a check-up and this is exactly what he diagnosed me with as well

When HTML5 will works properly, then you can suggest that. So far it doesn't, and crashes web browsers. Since YouTube implement HTML5 program, they can't visit youTube anymore as it crashes sometimes. Where they use Opera, Chrome or Firefox. I keep telling people to go to youtube.com/html5, and click to opt out, so that it uses Flash. And youtube isn't this exception. About all web sites that uses HTML5 videos creates headaches. HTML5 is extremely far from ready.

Anyone else notice that Win8 refuses to update Flash for IE? The Adobe Flash download webpage tells me to enable compatibility view lists in IE (which already are enabled) but Windows Update doesn't install a new Flash like it is supposed to. If you manually download the Active X version of Flash it won't install in Win8. I wish I could say it was a software glitch only on my one PC but this happens in my desktop's virtual machines as well as on my laptop. So right now there is no way to manually update IE's Flash on Win8...

This is a good thing, as it will only accelerate the development and acceptance of HTML5. I love developing in Flex/Air/Flash, but it's time to move on.

3rd paragraph - "vulnerabilities that could case a crash", should it not be "cause a crash" :-)
