Adobe Shockwave Still Supported?

Post by Chrobo » 2019-06-05, 01:24

Hi! I'm a bit new to Pale Moon, and so far I've been loving it (although, at times it can feel slighty sluggish). I also love it's customizability! I'm curious about one thing though, is Adobe Shockwave supported? I'm doubtful, but optimistically curious, as I am one of those few who still play old school games on Shockwave. (I even still have the original installer)

Also, I'm asking due to this little development: https://helpx.adobe.com/shockwave/shock ... e-faq.html

Netscape Plugin Application Programming Interface (NPAPI) Plugin Technology will never go away even if the plugins them selves do. So the technology is supported.. Now does that mean Adobe supports shockwave or really anyone on the web? Not so much. Does it also mean that issues aren't ever going to arise with old plugins? Nope.

Adobe discontinued development of Shockwave, but the download is still available.

It seems to be still supported by Pale Moon.

Which was already stated. see Tobin's reply.
