Adobe Flash Player EOL (End of Life)!
« on: July 25, 2017, 03:50:10 PM »
With the numerous critical security vulnerabilities over the years, the end of Flash Player has long been awaited.  The time is coming, although not until 2020.

Update on removing Flash from Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer

From Update on removing Flash from Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer by Colleen Williams, Senior Program Manager, Microsoft Edge:

Quote
In 2017, we published a roadmap to remove Adobe Flash from Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer by 2020. Since that post, we announced our intent to build Microsoft Edge on the Chromium open source project. In this post, we will provide an update on what to expect for the Flash retirement in Microsoft browsers.

Here's what you can expect for each Microsoft browser:

In the next version of Microsoft Edge (built on Chromium), we will continue to retire Flash in the same timeframe as other Chromium based browsers. You can learn more of that timeline in this blog post. Flash will initially be disabled, and the user will need to re-enable Flash on a site-by-site basis; Flash will be completely removed from the browser towards the end of 2020. Group policies are available for enterprise admins and IT pros to change the Flash behavior prior to that date.

For both the in-market version of Microsoft Edge (built on EdgeHTML) and Internet Explorer 11, the current experience will continue as-is through 2019. We plan to fully remove Flash by December 2020.
