Via Twitter , he said that Adobe will announce a date after which Flash is no longer supported. Browser developers such as Mozilla, Microsoft and Google then can a "killbit" record, so the technology after that date no longer work in their browsers. According Stamos is the only way to get all websites and technologies that are Flash dependent apart and at one time to upgrade the entire ecosystem.
