Why no Flash Player in 4.4.2 on HTC One

This was expected since Flash Player itself was killed off by Adobe in late 2011. Yeah, over two years ago.

I know that some of you will moan now, but most serious sites have used other ways to deliver the content on mobile browsers for at least 2 years now. It’s a technique that should have been buried ages ago, but for some reason it’s been a part of htc browsers until now. Google stopped using Flash Player in their mobile browser (Chrome) about a year ago, so this wasn’t really a big surprise in any way.  In many case I don’t think that people are aware really what it does, since: no, your browser will NOT look “ugly”. And, no: most sites doesn’t NOT use it on their mobile sites. It’s simply no longer needed for 99.9% of us.
