Hello Maxoq,

In my opinion i do feel flash is dead, because there are other alternatives which are more responsive and being responsive nowadays is what you want so your audience can view your website on mobiles, tablets and computers. a lot of effects you can do using HTML/CSS aswell.

Regards,
Adam

Absolutely!
It was all the craze for a while, but too many devices don't support it.

Stay away from Flash!

I think so.. Because I read something like that.. "Adobe reached out saying that Adobe Flash creators can export their creations directly to HTML5 within the app." Also "Google officially killed Flash advertising in its browser."

Honestly, I'm pretty sure that Flash died in the the late 90's and early 2000's. I use to be a huge support of flash animations and building websites using flash. Now, it's rare I even see something like that anywhere on the Web. Now-a-days, people use pure HTML markup, with javascript and CSS. With CSS animations, it makes animating text and other things super easy without the use of Flash.

OMG flash has been dead for years. I use to be a professional flash animator and illustrator creating tons of flash animations, logo's, banners and games for companies back then. It was so much fun, but the mobile devices murdered it unfortunately ...:sad_no:

Even Adobe is saying people should move to HTML5. I used to love Flash years ago. I even built some Flash websites. But as Lonric said, mobile devices have killed it. HTML5 is getting better and faster.

I don't think the Adobe Flash software is going away, but I think it will shift to producing HTML5 compatible code instead of the old SWF animations.

Well, there are websites that still use it. Lots of web content still uses the Flash format actually. So it's not dead. BUT it's use is decreasing. I don't think it will be used much at all within a few years.

I don't think Flash is readable by search engines either, though I might be wrong. Sure doesn't give you the opportunity for image traffic.

Many years ago I dabbled with flash, made a few banners, as it was good for animated banners. But if I remember correctly the files sizes got pretty big. Glad I didn't spend to much time learning it :)

Yes you are correct. Flash files could get huge, but after exporting, they were not big files at all. I am actualy very happy that I learned flash, though. It lead me to landing a huge clients, and making 100 K in 9 months. :)

Of course. Even Adobe is starting to encouraging their users to abandon and replace it with HTML5. They are also introducing Animation CC, a new technology for that kind of web interactions.

Not to my knowledge. I run into flash pages all the time. As a matter of fact, just last night, I had to download the flash player to my new system in order to see a page.

Some people see it that way. But some of my friends who are programmers say otherwise. Coz at some point using Flash has its own advantage over others.

Flash is dying. Almost dead. Flash has to adopt to the latest web technology and coding if it wanted to live. It is annoying for users to have to install flash players every now and then just to view the web page. Make flash compatible with any platform, or better yet, turn flash into an open source project for us to experiment and explore.
