Flash support will also disappear in the Google search engine. This means that in web pages with Flash content, Google will simply ignore such content. Likewise, indexing of standalone ShockWave Flash (SWF) files will end.
This change will take place by the end of the year. According to Google, " most users and websites will see no impact "as a result of this change.
In order to realize the current size of SWF files in Google search, it is enough for example to enter a query with the operator filetype: swf. A "filetype: swf game" query will search for SWF files with the term "game". It is more consistent with the term "game".
" Flash, you inspired the web. Now there are web standards like HTML5 to continue your legacy "writes Dong-Hwi Lee of Google to say goodbye to Flash. It will be recalled that the official end of Flash is scheduled for 2020 with Adobe which will no longer deliver security updates.
