Facebook and Mozilla No Longer Allow Adobe Flash


Adobe Flash, a software used as an add-on extension to the browser, has been blocked recently by Mozilla and Facebook. Such blockage was done after a finding that a spyware giant, the Hacking team, had been using Adobe Flash to take over public’s computers and infect it with malware.

 

The blockage means online users would switch to other browsers instead of Mozilla if they need to use Adobe Flash. Nevertheless,​ Mozilla users would not find the change annoying since less than 11% of websites use Adobe Flash, according to W3Techs, a technology survey company.

 

When YouTube firstly launched its program in 2005, it requires online users to install the Adobe Flash plug-in software in order to watch its media. (Photo Source: newsfactor.com)
