Web developer launches petition to create open source Flash

Now that Adobe announced the end of Flash Player, Finnish web developer Juha Lindstedt launched a petition asking Adobe to open the Flash specification so it can be maintained by the opensource community. According to Lindstedt, Flash is an important part of internet history and it’s end might mean the end of websites that run on Flash; experiments and games from the past will become inaccessible to future generations.

Various projects have already been launched to keep Flash. The problem is that they are not complete because Flash is a closed project. The developer wants to hand over the petition, which has now been signed more than 3,000 times. The software company announced this week that it will stop Flash Player by the end of 2020 and will no longer offer the software.

  1. Hi
    If you want to do important work, find out what you think is wrong in the world and try to fix that. If you need web development along the way, it’s not that hard as long as you know where you’re heading. Web Development is very much important for build a website. i have found a website (www.infosecaddicts.com) who provides web development course very carefully. I am very much interested in Web development and that’s why i have a question How to became a Web Developer ?

    Thanks.
