Firefox Mobile Download – Firefox Declares War on Flash – The ongoing war in the cyber space has just taken a new turn, and this time it’s between two cyber giants, Firefox and Flash.
Now, according to the announcement made by Firefox a fortnight ago, the brand will be shutting down the use of flash on it’s firefox platform as from August, 2016. It seems Firefox Declares War on Flash and that’s no jokes.
Now, what are the implications of these actions by firefox? This announcement means that as from August this year, Firefox will block any Flash content that they see as inessential from the browser, in other to enhance user efficiency. The essence for this is because Firefox wants to make sure that security is not breached, that is, the reason for the block is for the users security.
As Firefox Declares War on Flash, so many people may have seen it the wrong way, but then, Firefox assures that their reason also is to ensure that devices battery is improve, this is to say they care about their users battery life. Also it is a known fact that these Flash pop ups makes pages to load in a slower rate, this will however, enhance quicker and faster loading of web pages, as well as increase browser responsiveness, this was disclosed by Mr Benjamin Smedberg, the Manager of Firefox Engineering unit.
According to Mr Smedberg, this decision to ban Flash will result in at least 10% reduce in the Firefox browser crashing or even freezing, and also to ensure at least minimizing the problem viewing pages on a website. The plan will be to limit a list of Flash content which can as well be replaced by HTML. Meanwhile, Firefox will make the necessary additions as time goes on, later on in the year.
The deal here in the Firefox War on Flash is that’s, they will include Flash when it’s time for the adjustment, Firefox in conjunction with Flash will see if users will see adverts on the list as proposed. Next year, users will have to click on any Flash content for its activation.
As it is, a couple of other online platforms are at war with Flash, YouTube as well as Facebook has had to move from Flash to HTML5 for its video display, other online giants also have taken actions, like Google, they have blocked most Flash content from Chrome browser, on the other hand, Microsoft, will as announced introduce a new feature on their Edge browsing Platform, a feature that will stop all Flash content, safe for the user who click on them to play.
I hope that as Firefox Declares War on Flash, all the necessary details will be fix in other to avoid any user challenges.
