    That is a lifelong wait.

    HTML5 is still being defined.
    Perhaps you don't plan on living much longer.

    In many ways HTML5 is better.

    Use at your own risk, ymmv.

    I liked flash quite a bit.
    Was sorry to see it go.

    ?

    Yes, it's only been a few years now..

    Not exactly my plan, but maybe you have some insight with the grim reaper.

    Yes, but in many ways it's totally inferior to Flash.

    Flash is still a security problem.
    And we can all be glad that everything else is super secure. I don't think.

    Use at your own risk, ymmv.
    I don't really because the demise of Flash as a browser renderer (which is what it is) is more about software politics than technical issues and Flash was dead when Jobs protected the appstore from the sophisticated applications that Flash was capable of.

    Me too.

    It's not quite dead yet. It's still used for cross-platform development building app for IOS, Android, PC and Mac. I have developed a few apps on IOS and Android. I have a few bespoke flash-based game apps running in specialist venues with large projection screens ( think in tens of feet ), controlled by touch.

    I'm not championing Flash but I don't like it being kicked even if it's down.

    I have a feeling I haven't yet made my last Flash app..

    you can say that again...

    apple did a similar thing to wnidows users when it pulled supprt for windows quicktime - I have to have quicktime installed if I want ToonBoom to import/export, render on the hoof in an unrestricted manner, but I would rather not....

    ... just catching up on the US Supreme Court ruling upholding the decision that consumers can sue Apple if they think they have been overcharged in the app store as a result of 'sqeezing out' competition...

    I think the mega bucks come from console games. We buy quite a lot of apps (games mostly) and generally they are pretty cheap. Incredibly cheap in comparison with any console.

    Apple isn't much of a software producer so the real problem is the royalties that developers pay - I think it's about 30%. No wonder Jobs wouldn't let Flash anywhere near the IOS platform!

    though the hacks appear to have been targeted..... [this time round]

    It's very greedy in many ways. In some ways it can be generous.
