LOL... flash is dying :)
People please go on FB and load Candy Crush game and see and right mouse click will show you it's made in Flash... And more than 2/3 of games there... Just Candy crush has more than billion of players, tell me when was single webpage exposed to that many of people... Tell me can you recognise Adobe Air Game on iOS or Android. Flash just eveloped from cheap banners to modern games...
And then how many people lost their data because of Flash? I believe it's more dangerous to have subscription with T-mobile (15 million), Caperthone Warehouse (2.4 million) or Talk Talk when people even lost money when they got hacked :)
Bugs, bugs, bugs... How many patches did Windows release last year? If you buy a new computer with Windows 8 preinstaled it's starts patching Windows 8 and after more than one hour you have the chance to install new Windows 10.
Apple not diferent, what happens first week after all releases... Bug fixes, and then month after again...
From this perspective i understand apple's point to just ditch flash support altogether.
Why wait? Just get rid it in a month already popular web browsers. Websites should start working in HTML5 if they want their content to be accessible to everyone.
It's sad how Adobe and the industry is killing flash. I wish it stayed with Macromedia or Futurewave, it feels like it was such a revolutionary tech at that time (vector graphics, resolution independent). You can see how timelessly the old flash apps aged, because you can blast them on 4K monitor and they will still look perfect. It's sad what Adobe did to flash, because in its root Flash is an incredible technology that could be the future of the web and games. If only it was taken care of by capable company.

What I want to know is why there is no easy way to update flash automatically.
