While Adobe Flash became the main 'victim' of HTML5's stellar launch, this company has finally decided to ditch the Adobe Flash Professional branding and name, opting now for Adobe Animate as a main product.

Reported by Gizmodo as found in a recent Adobe announcement regarding Animate CC, it seems like the management at Adobe wants to let its long-standing Flash name die off without too much publicity.

With Adobe Flash Professional now no longer around, the new Animate program logically focuses on HTML5 and is set to hit the public by January 2016. With Flash no longer the internet standard, users may feel free to disable it on all systems.
