Several browser games still use flash as their framework. Many video-sharing sites still use flash and we are certain that flash isn’t dead, yet. It’s just, it’s slowly being replaced by HTML5 and there’s still some time for flash to live.
One of the benefits of relying to flash is because of Adobe’s approach with it. You only need one code base and you can be sure that your program will always run the same behavior no matter what platform or browser it runs. This means less pain and worry about developers. This is one of the biggest attraction of developers to flash, though end users and consumers seems to hate this technology.
Though flash is still very popular to desktop, mobiles is a different story. It’s almost dead and non-existent. Adobe has already announced defeat against Apple last 2011 and we can safely say that flash is already dead, but only for mobile.
The latest changes in YouTube during early 2015 seem to deal a fatal blow to flash. With their latest announcement, HTML5 became the default player for newer browser versions. This seems to be a great blow against flash. YouTube recently announced that it will stop using the flash player plugin for newer browsers that will visit the website and instead, it will use the newest standard, which is HTML5.
If you’re running an online multiplayer browser game, flash is still the king and it will be like this for decades to come. Flash still lives and will live long for gamers.
