ZDNet's comments and Occupy Flash Movement
Yesterday we published a long blog article on this subject. This morning I found an interesting online article on the same subject. It was wriitten by Todd Pasternack, Senior Director of Creative Technology at Pointroll, as a special to ZDNet. You can read the complete article by clicking here.
It's very interesting that Computerworld reports the foundation of an "Occupy Flash" movement that wants the plug-in dead. At first I though this article was a joke, but it turns out the group really exixts. The read the Computerworld article go here.
"...And the group didn't mince words why it was after Flash Player.
"Flash Player is dead. Its time has passed. It's buggy. It crashes a lot. It requires constant security updates," said the Occupy Flash site. "It's a fossil, left over from the era of closed standards and unilateral corporate control of Web technology."...
Occupy Flash urged browser users to uninstall Flash Player, and provided instructions for both Windows and Mac OS X users to do so. It also called on developers on stop using Flash in future projects, and encouraged users to upgrade to a browser that supports HTML5."
