Occupy Flash Wants You to Ditch Adobe For Good

Apple might have forced Adobe to kill Flash mobile, but Occupy Flash wants to unite the world in eradicating Flash from the desktop as well. The goal is simple: get everyone to uninstall Flash Player and you can join the fight now.

OK, it might be a bit over-the-top to take the anti-capitalist Occupy-type protests against a piece of software, no matter how crappy it is - but I'm with them. I loathe Flash for its inefficiencies, ability to bring computers to their knees, and horrendous introduction animations that you just can't skip. Adobe might not be to blame for all the issues with Flash; but a world with Flash retired would be a better world for all. [Occupy Flash via The Verge]
