No flash for Jelly Bean

So, does this mean that Facebook games (Words w/ Friends, casino games, etc.) will not run?

From what I read on another site, Adobe will stop supporting Flash on mobile devices after August 15th, which I think means we'll be safe because it'll already be installed on the Nexus 7. I don't think they can take it away prior to August 15th. At least that's how I interpreted it.

You can still use flash on any device including the N7. All this means is, adobe won't be upgrading or supporting flash, so it will slowly die out... It even says in the N7 manual that you can use flash, just not through google chrome...

@LanceJ.....Gee, does that mean we won't be pestered with "There's an upgrade available do you want to download it now?" messages?

Adobe is stopping Flash support and is endorsing HTML5. Their thinking is that Flash is outdated and HTML5 is a better alternative.

There is no FLASH installed on the Nexus 7 and you cannot download it from the PLAY store, or install from a backup, as it says "Your device is incompatible" !!

This has been discussed at length by Google and Adobe and all over the tech press.  It shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. HTML5 is becoming the new standard and YouTube and many other sites are now coded in HTML5 for video.   Older games and such will slowly but surely also be converted to HTML5 as well.  It's just a matter of time.   The entire web is headed towards that direction.

Youtube's iframe embed code detects the code your browser or device supports and displays it in either Flash or HTML5. Which is the reason Youtube works. Just a FYI.

Yup it'll be a bumpy road as websites are forced to drop Flash, but eventually it won't be such a big deal.  Problem though is so many mom and pop sites were written years ago by overzealous developers who jumped onto the Flash bandwagon, and many of these sites won't be updated anytime soon.

Luckily my Fire still supports Flash, but a day will come when people will look at Flash as they now look at Real Audio.  A once 'must have' app that's become totally legacy.
