Is Flash Really Obsolete?

Posted 17 February 2013 - 11:15 PM

Hi all,

A Noob question, I know. Apologies in advance. :surrender:

Wasn't sure who to ask, so I hope you can help.

I am looking at having a Flash-based desktop application made for my own personal use, though could possibly be commercialized for a very small purchase amount, as others in my industry have advised it would be useful to them. (Mac users need AdobeAir, for what I have in mind...)

With the web, and HTML5 etc etc - what implications does this have for users of Desktop programs that solely use Flash (although uncommon)?

So we won't use Flash on web anymore, but will we/can we continue to use it in a desktop environment?

Many thanks

This post caught my eye because I was just reading about this the other day. I used flash back when it was Flash 4 so it's been quite a while. I can't speak from industry stand point but you are correct that HTML5 and webgl will replace flash on the web at some point. I still think it has a few years left but who knows, it really depends on how many people adapt the technology.
