Occupy Flash - The movement to rid the world of the Flash Player plugin
A great idea.
Flash Player is dead. Its time has passed. It’s buggy. It crashes a lot. It requires constant security updates. It doesn’t work on most mobile devices. It’s a fossil, left over from the era of closed standards and unilateral corporate control of web technology. Websites that rely on Flash present a completely inconsistent (and often unusable) experience for fast-growing percentage of the users who don’t use a desktop browser. It introduces some scary security and privacy issues by way of Flash cookies.
Flash makes the web less accessible. At this point, it’s holding back the web.
That being said, I think they really need to target the developers. Users want to see the content provided on sites and until the sites stop using Flash to deliver the content, users will want to have Flash Player installed. Production has to stop first.
