In a way its sad.  I know there were issues with Flash, but I shall fondly remember the days of Flash games - particularly the P'n'C (point and click) ones which I used to be a big fan of.    Websites then were hardly boring and there were some fabulous creations.   Today's websites look very bland in comparison most all following similar responsive designs and wordpress like :(

I have never had flash installed on this PC, I don't miss it.
