This one might seem like a minor point, but given the combined target of one of the world’s largest porn sites and never-ending security vulnerabilities in Flash, it’s actually really good news that Pornhub has abandoned its old video player in favor of HTML5.

What it should mean is a safer, quicker browsing experience for desktop users – given that mobile devices largely dropped support for Flash already, HTML5 players have been commonplace for a good while already.

Not everyone’s happy about the change though; some adblock users are reporting that the player doesn’t load correctly (problems with audio and/or on-screen controls), so you might need to add an exception for Pornhub if you want it to work correctly.
