Flash is slowly dying out

WAY to slowly though.

Definitely always been one of those programs you love to hate.

People have been saying that for years but it's still here. Same with Java. Unfortunately, they're still "must-haves".

They have their advantages. No way you can do in HTML5 what you possibly could with java

Hmm, 11.5, I've been on 11.6 for quite some time now, and still getting updates.

11.6 is beta and has its focus mostly on smartphones/tablets. If my memory serves me correct, there are some Firefox-related issues as well, but I'm not so sure.

Quote from Adobe site:
NOTE: Adobe Flash Player 11.2 will be the last version to target Linux as a supported platform. Adobe will continue to provide security backports to Flash Player 11.2 for Linux.

why are they doing that?
