Adobe has finally pulled the plug on its Flash Player. The once-amazing and ubiquitous plug-in had become problematic in many ways—buggy, open to cyberattacks and lacking compatibility. Open technologies like HTML5 offer audio and video players that are vastly more secure, work better and are more stable. The plug-in player that built YouTube had simply outlived its usefulness.
How to uninstall Flash.
- Download an uninstaller application for Flash Player. (Each operating system has its own uninstaller; Mac users need to be careful to match the uninstaller to the exact OS version you’re using.)
- Run the uninstaller. (This includes closing all programs and browsers that use Flash.)
- Verify that the uninstallation was successful by restarting your computer and checking the status of Flash Player on your computer from the Adobe website.
