The developer initiates a petition request for Adobe open source Flash to Preserve the Internet history


Adobe decided to kill Flash in 2020, Finnish developer Juha Lindstedt launched a petition on GitHub after Adobe announced the news, requesting Adobe open source Flash to save the Internet history. He pointed out that Flash is an important part of Internet history, killing Flash means that the next few generations will not be able to access the past, with Flash development games, experiments and sites will be forgotten.

He asked the open source community to take over Flash, maintain a compact version of the Flash plug-in or at least create a tool to accurately convert old SWF and FLA files to HTML5, canvas or WebAssembly. Opponents of the petition activity believe that open source Flash means that people will continue to use it, without security support, Flash will become more secure.
