Long live the 'full web experience'?
Adobe has halted new installs of Flash on Android.
Any downloads after now will be limited to updates for existing installations...
In November last year, Adobe made a 'surprising' announcement about its popular Flash plugin, saying that it would stop development of it for mobile devices.
And yes, it's already time to say 'goodbye' as Adobe will disable new installs of Flash on Android, effectively cutting it off from the future of the mobile web.
And while alternatives like Skyfire still persist (and, of course, the "unofficial installs"), perhaps the best bet would be to get comfortable with HTML5 and native apps from now on.As Adobe warned earlier in the year, new installations from Google Play won't be an option from August 15th onwards. Any downloads after that point will be limited to updates for existing installations or to those willing to raid Adobe's archives -- assuming would-be users aren't already running Android 4.1, that is.
