Chrome Begins Plan to Phase Out Flash

Category: Internet
Posted: 01:54PM

Google is planning the demise of Flash in the Chrome browser, with the beginning of the end coming next month with the release of Chrome 53. Google is starting with "tiny and non-visible Flash content, such as tracking and fingerprint cookies," and will later remove support for Flash altogether in Chrome 55 with some exceptions planned for "sites which only support Flash." Chrome 55 is expected to be available in December of this year and with it, HTML5 looks to become the new default for web browsers.

You can download install Chrome version 53.0.2785.57 beta now for PC,.. I installed it this morning. https://www.google.com/chrome/browser/beta.html


Version 53  for Android is also in beta with a number of cool new user facing features. http://blog.chromium.org/2016/08/chrome-53-beta-shadow-dom.html

And then be screwed for the sites that still use it. NOPE!

I do not like Chrome at all. The fact that Chrome is owned by Google means that, like Win 10 and IE, it will soon be very intrusive. Big Brother watching gives me real concern..........
