Beginning from September 2016, Google is stopping complete support for Flash-based content on Google Chrome browser and making HTML 5 as the default.
Adobe Flash played a significant role in the past decade in displaying multimedia content like videos, animations, and games on websites.
Flash has severe security bugs. Time to time Adobe is releasing updates to patch those security flaws, but every time new risks are coming into the limelight. Most of the attackers using Flash to transfer dangerous content to the user’s computers.
Keeping this in mind, Google started blocking Flash content partially since last September with Chrome 42. When we encountered some Flash content on the websites, it doesn’t automatically play, and we need to click to play the content.
Now, from next month onwards, Google completely stopping support for Flash and promoting HTML 5 instead of it. Those websites which still using Flash have to change their coding to work smooth with the Google Chrome browser. HTML 5 is light-weight and loads fast. Indirectly it saves battery also.
