A few days ago Google announced that Chrome will start to block Adobe Flash running in the background of Web-based systems to support page analytics and similar functionality. The cut-off will come this September when Chrome 53 launches. Then, in December, \u201cChrome 55 will make HTML5 the default experience, except for sites which only support Flash,\u201d Google stated.\r\n\r\nFlash\u2019s long-anticipated death is drawing ever closer. What does this mean for your Web strategy, if you still have Flash-based app?\r\n\r\nIt\u2019s simple. Start to replace it, now.\r\n\r\nWhile you still have ample time to build an HTML5-based equivalent, test it, and run it for a time in parallel with your Flash-based app as you transition users over. Since the HTML5-based system, if architected and engineered with care, is apt to be faster and more secure, you\u2019ll be glad you did. And so will your users.
