For decades, Adobe Flash has been a cornerstone of the web, with the player plug-in doing everything from helping you watch videos to playing computer games. But Flash is on its way out as a technology. Adobe made the decision to phase out the software by the end of 2020. Some browsers are already making the transition, leaving Flash behind in favor of migration to open web technologies. Why Adobe Flash Is No Longer Working Hopefully you wont notice much difference, as browsers try to seamlessly migrate without disrupting your user experience. However, there are some hiccups. For example, at Virteom, we have had to make alterations to some modules (or plug-ins) that we use in our content management system (CMS); they no longer work because Chrome and Firefox are no longer supporting Flash. How Are Browsers Transitioning Away From Flash? Browsers have always been the primary delivery mechanism for Flash-enabled content, but today, popular browsers are definitely migrating away from

Blogging has become an essential marketing strategy in the business world. Creating your own content not only sets you apart from your competitors, but also helps your customers in a big way giving them the best tips and tricks to solve their problems and answer their questions.

A website is more than a place to find a phone number or email. Its more than product and service details. Its more than a place to boast about your company employees, history, and experience. Its more than an extra for your business or marketing, its a necessity. Websites are not what they used to be, they have to be both a foundation and driver of your web presence growth.
