By the end of December 2020, Adiobe Flash Payer will be at its end of life.  All downloads for it will be removed from their sites.

When I turned on my computer today, I got a popup message from Adobe to uninstall it.  Microsoft states there will be an update to remove it completely during the Fall of 2020.

Most browsers have started or finished the process of moving away from it.

This will be sad for some game sites that used Flash Player to work. :/
I also remember when Mozilla Firefox used Flash Player and how many times the plugin failed (this was very annoying)

But it was about time ... Flash Player is old and many browsers no longer use it (they even report it as insecure)
R.IP. Flash Player.

Microsoft will end support for Adobe Flash Player on 31 December 2020, along with Adobe and their other industry partners.

This means that starting January 2021, customers will no longer receive security updates for support for Adobe Flash Player. Microsoft will also take steps to remove Flash from the Windows operating system

Here's what you can expect for each Microsoft browser:

Flash is currently disabled by default in the new Microsoft Edge.
However, users may re-enable it on a site-by-site basis through December of 2020.

In January 2021, Flash will be fully removed from the new Microsoft Edge.

Flash will  not be disabled by default from the legacy version of Microsoft Edge (built on EdgeHTML) or Internet Explorer 11 prior to its removal in December of 2020.
