Why are we still using Flash?

Question

Flash is an outdated technology that is slow, cumbersome and generally a pain in **** to use. Yet again I'm having issues getting the charts up as IG is telling me I don't have Flash installed, even though I do and it's allowed on the site.

Here's an idea IG, how about you separate yourselves from this obsession with Flash, realise it's outdated and update your platforms with HTML5? Wouldn't that be nice?

Hi @Djelibaybi, the new platform is HTML5, the old platform will be phased out once all trade types have migrated to the new and the share dealing is in the process of being updated. Another solution to the flash problem was posted by cate recently.

Oh dear - have found the problem! Cleared the cache and the charts are back... Sorry for the fuss!

Thanks Caseynotes.

Do you have any idea on how much longer that's going to take? The new platform was released last year.

Thanks for the response.

Hi @Djelibaybi, sorry but haven't seen anything go through on timing for the arrival of the new share trading platform or for the carry over of the remaining instruments onto the new web based platform. I am assuming they now have priority now the ESMA debacle has pasted.

Seems IG will need to get a move on developing the new HTML5 platforms to replace the old web based and the share dealing platform as Adobe are set to 'permanently retire' flash in 2020.

Interesting article here on flash being used for 'cryptojacking' where malware slipped into flash starts you computer mining for Monero to send to an anonymous wallet.

    • Hi all, been up and running and watching from the side lines. Thanks for putting the list up early as I made my own list from the gap scanner from ideas but you seemed to have more plus alot of the tickers I could not trade on IG but jumped on TG Therapeutics at 973 and took some money from that. Then jumped back in at 1059 and she plummeted and my heart just sank. I managed to ride it back up to 1053 and got out with a small profit of £20. Should have put my stop in but am still learning to get out quick . I was so lucky it went back up. Thought I was going to be on a bad loss because I didn't get out early enough. I find that if you only gain a small amount each day its better that going hard at it and loosing.  Still got loads to learn. Anyway cant wait till monday.  Great content and look forward to next week. Have a great weekend.
    • Is it safe to come out now?
