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]

Good luck to all the idiots out there. While you're at it. Occupy the internet and uninstall your web browsers. Since flash still runs on, I dunno, 90% of the websites I visit.

No thanks. How instead of being a bunch of loud, obnoxious anti-flash Tools, who still hang on every word Zombie Steve Jobs has to say, get the fuck back down in the basement and start coding some websites that use HTML5.

2007: "HTML5 is the future, flash is obsolete" Side note, flash makes up about 99% of all active content.

"Ditch Adobe For Good"

Does that include Photoshop, Premier, and Aftereffects?

I would LOVE to see Adobe ditch Apple.
