After the recent security kerfuffles with Flash, there's been a lot talk about killing Flash. Like, the head of facebook security saying we should kill flash. Or Mozilla having to release emergency patches just to block Flash from getting it's grimy hands on your computer. This is causing more people to start banging the drum to hunt down Flash like a vampire and burn its corpse at the stake (or do you put the stake through the vampire...does it need to be on fire?) and it's starting to seem like a lot of people couldn't be happier to see it gone.
So we kill Flash - is Html5 and WebGL in any state to replace it just yet? I've had a very tough time trying to get games to work cross-browser in Html5 (with it's limited feature set compared to Flash) and WebGL still seems to be in it's infancy (see Unity5).
What about all the historic content like Newgrounds, Kongregate, heck the majority of online games made for the last decade? If Flash is killed off, how much of internet history goes up in flames overnight? I can't imagine many people would (or even could) port their games away from Flash.
I don't know what the right answer is, but I feel like we have at least some responsibility to maintain the history of the internet. Blocking off a decades worth of content with no alternatives is a scary proposition.
