Google is banning Flash from its display ads

Even Adobe is sick of Flash the software's creator has started urging people to stop using it in favor of HTML5 but the player still persists in web ads across the internet. Fortunately, that may soon be about to end. Google has announced that from June 30th this year, its widely used AdWords and DoubleClick advertizing services will no longer allow uploads of ads built in Flash, forcing users to code their display ads in HTML5 instead. From January 2nd next year, Flash ads won't run at all on DoubleClick or the Google Display Network.

Flash is clearly an obsolete technology and everyone should use HTML and CSS in this day and age.
