    This idea has been developed and is On Canvas Beta How do I access the Canvas beta environment?

      

    Adobe's have announced that they will no longer be pushing flash development instead recognising that HTML 5 replaces much of the functionality that was once provided by Flash.

    Please can Canvas remove the need for Flash across its Web platform as part of core functionality and replace it with HTML 5?
