Today Google introduced Chrome for Android Beta. As we announced last November, Adobe is no longer developing Flash Player for mobile browsers, and thus Chrome for Android Beta does not support Flash content,” wrote Adobe’s Flash Platform product manager Bill Howard.
The past year has been devastating for Adobe Flash and for Flash designers and developers. I personally think this is for the best, as it gives us UX designers and Interactive Creatives one more bullet in our magazine to shoot down horrible “creative” ideas from people that don’t understand the web and usability. “Hey yeah, that idea is nice and all, but to pull it off we’ll have to build it in Flash. Oh and by the way, you want this be mobile optimized so yeah, start over.” Ahhhh that felt good.
