Anyone who knows me knows I hate Flash with a passion. I hate it because it grinds my PC or laptop to a halt, no matter what spec it is, I hate it because it makes my day job (SEO) ten times more difficult than it needs to be, I hate it because it provides a barrier to many websites. I just hate it.

Occupy Flash

The thought that it would ever appear on mobile devices was a sickening one. So obviously I rejoiced at Apple’s decision not to support it and I jumped for joy when Adobe finally agreed with Steve Jobs and gave up on it.

Still it hangs around on the web though, like some kind of diseased limpet, clinging to existence despite better technologies and just plain better design. I will be a happier man when even Adobe admit they don’t want anything to do with it anymore.

If this is something you can get behind, something you can agree with, then let me point you in the direction of Occupy Flash. It has one aim – to get everyone to uninstall Flash Player from their computers and thus render the whole technology defunct. Now that’s a movement I can get behind.

So…let’s create a Flash-free world together. Join the fight now. Please. For the sake of our children, if nothing else.
