Flash and Chrome

Adobe Flash Player played a pivotal role in the adoption of video, gaming and animation on the web. Today, sites typically use technologies like HTML5, giving you improved security, reduced power consumption and faster page load times. Going forward, Chrome will de-emphasize Flash in favor of HTML5. Here’s what that means for you.

Google finally kills off Flash as the default player in Chrome

Making true on its promise, Google now blocks Adobe Flash by default on its Chrome browser. This kind of Flash slows you down. HTML5 is much lighter and faster, and publishers are switching over to speed up page loading and save you more battery life. You’ll see an improvement in responsiveness and efficiency for many sites.

Chrome is the latest browser to ditch Adobe’s multimedia software, with Apple’s Safari and Microsoft’s Edge having already moved away from Flash. From now, HTML5 is the default option for Chrome users, although exceptions can be made for sites that only support Flash. Users can enable sites to run Flash in Content settings, as well as “detect and run important Flash content,” and “block sites from running Flash”. This third option is the one enabled by default.

How do I install the latest version of Flash Player in Google Chrome

Chrome users don’t have to download new versions of Flash Player. Chrome automatically updates when new versions of Flash Player are available. That way, users always have the latest security updates. Select About Google Chrome under the Tools menu to verify that your Chrome browser is up-to-date. It can take some time before updates roll out to all Chrome users.
