Nearly the end of an era #flash #eol

Chrome decided to remind me of something today. Something that reminds me of a lot of “tutorials” and long hours; that culminated in me really hating a particular platform… If only because it meant me parsing a lot of the same markup; specifically the Object tag, with the Embed tag somewhat ironically embedded inside it.

Something that was so geared toward graphics, but designed specifically for an entirely text-biased medium, I found more than a little funny.

Eventually something arrived to replace it (long live the Video tag and the Canvas tag) and it looks like they will stick around for a good long while.

In the meantime: there will hopefully be no interruption on YouTube; and modern actively-updated browsers will all gracefully degrade from it…
