    Just want to point out this. It was going to happen.

    great move, now if only game devs would stop making games in Java...

      There's hope. Minecraft is getting a non-Java version.

        Yup we are buying the windows 10 beta asap :) my boys are going to flip out with excitement when they find out.

        That's the best news for my son - and he doesn't even know it :)

    They already switched their chat to html5 / Javascript a couple of weeks back. Great move.

    Yay! It's about time, especially considering all that's been going on. Seems flash is going to slowly deteriorate away now.

    This is absolutely lovely! Twitch is one of the last things that's keeping Flash installed on my computer and I can't wait to see it go.

    This won't help with the buffering issues though will it? Either way I think it's a great move

    That's a fantastic move and a long time coming to be honest!

    Good. Maybe now I can watch stuff without having to fire up Livestreamer every time I don't want to deal with absurdly high CPU/memory usage in order to watch hilariously buggy wrestling matches between Octodad and Johnny Cage.

    Good. It has been a long time comic.

    This makes me really wonder if they've finally found a solution to the encoding problems. Last time a switch to HTML5 was mentioned, it was always stated that it wasn't a feasible change because the live encoding was way too slow. Stream delays would be almost a minute minimum.

    So I don't know if there's been a breakthrough, or if that con has finally been outweighed by the pros *shrugs*

    This is great news. I really hope that all the other websites take notice and quickly follow suit to ditch Flash as well.

    Good, as a Linux user I really want to ditch flash entirely, I just might be able to now.
