Mozilla Replaces Flash Player with Shumway In Firefox Nightly

Mozilla Replaces Flash Player with Shumway In Firefox Nightly

Removal of Adobe from Mozilla and Firefox has been an ongoing process. It was a thorn in the side of these two. Now that Shumway has come of age, things are about to change for the better. This bold and daring experiment is all about shuffling the Flash plug-in with a JavaScript renderer. 

All this is purely for the sake of Flash’s SWF file format. And this format doesn’t employ any platform-indigenous code either. If the tentative procedure yields its results, then Firefox will do away with any Flash plug-in requirements. This in turn will lend browsers a shot at rendering Flash content on forums where the availability of Adobe support is nonexistent. And a collective vector would be weeded out to boot. Of course, all this is well and good. 

The entry of Shumway into Firefox’s code took place via the debut of PDF.js at the start of 2013. It happens to be a PDF viewer encrypted in JavaScript. And it is now openly available in Firefox 19. The user base of Firefox may even test Shumway by implanting an extension. This will allow them to see it work in its splendor. 

Concurrently, Shumway has joined the ranks of Firefox’s Nightly builds. Both developers and design gurus may test the new sensation via the Shumway Inspector. Meanwhile, Chrome has some similarities to Mozilla yet it has a radically alternative scope. It appears to be that Shumway is all set to become the new highway in place of Flash.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
