Flash deprecation and HTTPS
« on: January 12, 2017, 02:51:32 PM »
I am sure you are aware; Since version 53 Chrome has started to deprecate flash. In suite, Firefox has also started doing this. Eventually flash will be phased out for HTML5. As well, chrome and Firefox are starting to enforce HTTPS/SSL only connections or marking non-HTTPS as insecure. Soon, they will start blocking non-SSL servers altogether.

How are you guys preparing for these changes?

What about also getting an SSL certificate from an Authority? People start seeing "Not a secure connection" or some nonsense when HTTP is used and its going to startle. As well passwords should be sent over SSL/TLS.
