I don't use flash nor do I encourage people to use it...EVER!

Adobe is a terrible company with terrible software except maybe their CS. Flash is a shitty program needing constant attention and causing people's computers to become infected. Java is another contributor but HTML5 is here and should be adopted EVERYWHERE!


Flash does not exist on my computer. If I hit a website that requires it, I pass. Even porn has gone to HTML5 mostly.
