Until I came across this, I used to think Ocupy Campaigns are strictlly directed towards countries by concerned citizens who want certain changes. Well, a concerned group has launched a campaign againt Adobe’s decision to drop Flash on the mobile platform. They are revolting against Adobe’s move.
The goal of the movement is “to get the world to uninstall the Flash Player plugin from their desktop browsers.” I wonder how possible this is, anyway. They presented their manifesto thus:
Flash Player is dead. Its time has passed. It’s buggy. It crashes a lot. It requires constant security updates. It doesn’t work on most mobile devices. It’s a fossil, left over from the era of closed standards and unilateral corporate control of web technology. Websites that rely on Flash present a completely inconsistent (and often unusable) experience for fast-growing percentage of the users who don’t use a desktop browser. It introduces some scary security and privacy issues by way of Flash cookies. Flash makes the web less accessible. At this point, it’s holding back the web.
Interestingly, when I visited the site, the site detected flash player on my browser and gave instructions on how to uninstall it. They also gave several tips on how everyone can do without flash player.
So, what do you think about this kind of campaign? Will you be uninstalling the Flash Player on your PC? source
