In May of this year, Google circulated an internal draft proposal to effectively block Flash from their Chrome browser and prioritize HTML5 by the end of the year. Today we've learned that the company will be going ahead with the plan to "demphasize" Flash, by disabling the plug-in through multiple versions of Chrome.
The late Steve Jobs had a personal disdain for Adobe Flash. Specifically its security vulnerabilities and inherent issues to back door into personal computers, servers and data centers.
If Mr. Jobs were alive today he'd be happy to hear Apple's recent announcement to disable media plugins Adobe Flash, Microsoft Silverlight, Sun-Oracle's Java and their very own Quicktime in the upcoming release of browser Safari 10.
The announcement was made last week at Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference in San Francisco. Safari 10 will debut alongside new MacOS, Sierra which is set to release later this fall.
