The year 2020 is almost over and I know that Adobe said they would stop supporting Flash. I think we should keep it going. As I've seen with petitions, there are thousands of people who don't want Flash to go. That would be years of games and animation making down the drain and it's a big part of their childhood. There are also people who can't convert their games and animations to HTML5.

Sorry but this is not up for debate. The decision to stop supporting Flash content was made years ago by the browsers.

#1 The browsers don't want you to use Flash Player for security reasons.  That's why Flash Player is ending. 

#2 Flash content developers had 3 years advanced notice to get it together and switch technologies.  If they failed to do it, that's their fault, not Adobe's.

yes, apparently Flash is so insecure that it can destroy user computer.

the only problem here, is no one put the light on other security holes a computer can have,

like windows, chrome itself, javascript, webassembly, and even backdoor on CPU and some chipset on smartphone

that spy your activity and send instantly all your personal data to a database somewhere in the world.

you said security? so for your safety go to a fema camp without any electronic devices nor electricity.

Yes security.  Flash Player is a relatively old plug-in, it has become increasingly vulnerable to online threats like viruses and hackers.  Most web browsers started disabling Flash Player by default for security reasons 2-3 years ago. Modern browsers, including Safari for iOS and Catalina, can't even use Flash Player.

I really thought the nly reason why Flash is going is because not a lot of people were using it.
