How HTML5 Won and Adobe Flash Player Lost

As you might now, interactive media, in-browser games, animations and all sorts of other cool stuff we love about the Internet need an addition boost in order to load and run in our browsers. Nowadays the two most encountered alternatives for this are HTML5 and Adobe Flash Player. There was another program called White Flash at the beginning of the 00s that seemed it would stick around for long, but it didn’t and now we just have these two.

Raise your hand if you know which one of the two programs is the problematic one. If your answer is Adobe Flash Player, you’re absolutely right. As far as we can tell from the way in which the current online landscape is shaping up, it seems that Adobe Flash Player finally lost the battle and HTML 5 is the winner. But why did things turn out like this, especially when Adobe Flash Player used to be the more popular choice?

The Downfall of Adobe Flash Player

Adobe Flash Player used to be the best option for loading media, but it’s not anymore. So what happened to it? Well, somewhere along the way, Adobe Flash Player got lost and its security system crumbled to the ground. Now Flash Player isn’t only unreliable, laggy and glitchy, it’s also unsafe. A lot of malware has recently gained access to computers via encryption and coding flaws in Adobe Flash Player’s security system.

About HTML5

If you’ve been on the Internet long enough, you most likely remember how HTML4 launched 20 years ago in 1997. Now we have HTML5, a new version launched in 2014 that is drastically improved and works even better than Flash Player. Most websites are turning towards it in order to load media, and it seems that HTML5 is the winner here.
