For webmasters:

FLASH - still one of the best animation authoring software produced - will be shut down by its producer, Adobe, by 2020.

Reason: Security. Even now certain browsers freeze up trying to protect computers from security issues.

What this means for you? Replace your FLASH based animations and video with HTML5 animations and mp4 video. This is a labor intensive process. (It may find you prioritizing and deleting many of your animations and videos. That can be a good thing, especially for your users.)
