Vikas Joshi on Interactive Learning

Lastly, as of June 30 this year, Google AdWords will no longer support Flash in their ads. It has plenty of limitations, like the need for external JavaScript of CSS files for animations and video, or the fact that it doesn't run well on all browsers: Firefox, Safari and IE lower than 10 have poor or no support for it.
