Adobe Flash Player: What Alternatives Should You Use?

As most of you already know, the Adobe Flash Player comes with many security problems that many are trying to avoid. This is the reason why some users are looking to find some alternative applications for Flash Player.

“Is there any good alternative to Adobe Flash Player. I found free (free as in freedom) ones like Gnash or Lightspark but they seem to be no longer developed and doesn’t work on the majority of flash based content used today,” said Sboderman from Reddit. As expected, someone told him about the HTML5, which is currently spreading faster and soon, there will be more and more companies that will start using it on their websites.

It seems that igreworld from Reddit also has a pretty good idea. He claims that there are some add-ons on Firefox such as Video Without Flash or No Flash, which *sometimes* succeed to run multimedia without having Flash installed on computers.

So, currently the only alternative that you have to view Flash content without having Flash Player installed on your computer is just to install Firefox on your device and use one of the two mentioned add-ons.

Unfortunately for Adobe Flash Player fans, this application will be “destroyed” by HTML5 sometime in the near future. There are some speculations saying that the Flash Player will die sometime before the end of 2018 and HTML5 will take over.

If you don’t manage to view Flash content via the Firefox using Video Without Flash or No Flash, you will need to just install the Adobe Flash Player on your computer. You can keep your computer safe even with Adobe Flash Player installed, just make sure that you run an anti-virus application and don’t allow Flash Player to run on unknown websites.
