Facebook has finally made a huge move in a bid to completely ditch Adobe Flash for HTML5. The social network recently switched to the growing media platform, and even older web browsers will be supported.
Every video on Facebook will be HTML5-supported as the company moves one step closer to removing Flash from the social network for good. As it stands right now, only games will have support for Flash, but we expect that soon enough, all games will switch over to the new platform.
One of the reasons for Facebook’s move has much do to with the platform’s continuous security risks, an issue that never gets solved. This can be both a problem for Facebook and users of its network.
