I am fairly new to using this site and have not used the wireframe tool before, although I do have the desktop version of Balsamiq.

I thought I would give it a whirl but was told I need flash player installed. However, Chrome kicks up a fuss and I need to allow Flash Player for individual sites. This is ok, except Chrome is also telling me that after December 2020 it will no longer support Flash Player at all. Here is a brief bit of information, plenty more available if you search for it.

So, any plans in the pipeline to still support wireframes in posts?


~~And if so, how will existing wireframes be affected if at all?~~

As per comments, historic posts shouldn't suffer as PNG files are used for displaying posts anyway.

  • The existing wireframes are included in questions as .png images to StackOverflow's provisioned i.stack.imgur.com hosting, so they'll remain intact. I would guess that the "download bmml source" links that appear below would remain functional as well, but I'm not sure. It'd be nice to hear if there was any other information on this. I'm sure most of us do not own wireframing software, so it'd certainly be useful for us all to have a common in-site tool. – maxathousand Jun 11 at 12:50
  • @maxathousand: Ah yes, that makes sense to store both the original wireframe data and a PNG render of it. Much faster for page loading, and solves the issue I refer to about historic posts. Still leaves the question of supporting the feature going forward though. I think I read that Balsamiq actually have HTML 5 only (non-flash) support in their own cloud services, so it might be a case that UX just needs to get in contact and work out how to transition over (if at all possible). – musefan Jun 17 at 8:21
