2021 Flash Players on Computers
« on: January 04, 2021, 11:03:58 AM »
Thought there use to be a Computer section, but I did not see a section for computers, so I started this topic under the Science section. 
I am not a computer tech savvy person.  Could use some help on computer tech on this subject.
  What is going to replace Flashplayer on the computers after 2020?

Over the weekend, my computer had notices for updating different drivers and software.
Then there was an Adobe notice saying
Quote
Since Adobe will no longer be supporting Flash Player after December 31, 2020 and Adobe will block Flash content from running in Flash Player beginning January 12, 2021, Adobe strongly recommends all users immediately uninstall Flash Player to help protect their systems.

 So, what does this mean...  Will I have to find another Flash player to install or will Microsoft put this in their upcoming Windows update?
I use both FireFox and Google chrome browsers.

All your answers are on Google search.  You can still use Flash if you have not updated Chrome although you may have to change a few settings to do so.  Fact is few websites use Flash now.  While once very popular it's outdated technology now.  Most websites can play video using HTML5.  There are also a few add-ons that can play Flash if you can't live without it.

I've been seeing the advertising for various flash products to download on many second rate porn sites.  Im not tech savvy, but know enough not to download shit from porn sites. I suggest others do not either.
