Flash in the Pan

It’s about time:

Mozilla announced on Tuesday that Firefox 23, the latest version of its browser, will not support the HTML tag blink. The blink HTML tag allows Web site owners to make text start blinking. It was popular in the 1990s, but thankfully fell out of favor years ago after the world decided it was extremely, extremely annoying.

With Mozilla’s decision, blink is all but dead. Google’s Chrome, Apple’s Safari, and Opera have all abandoned the tag, leaving it with precious few places to be spotted.


If your website still uses flashing text, there’s a good chance you’ve been in a coma the last 15 years.
