Later this year we plan to change how Chromium hints to websites about the presence of Flash Player, by changing the default response of Navigator.plugins and Navigator.mimeTypes. If a site offers an HTML5 experience, this change will make that the primary experience. We will continue to ship Flash Player with Chrome, and if a site truly requires Flash, a prompt will appear at the top of the page when the user first visits that site, giving them the option of allowing it to run for that site
And so the slow march of death of Flash continues, ever onward, never looking back, into the abyss, a neverending blackness, cold and deep, nevermore to return.
I run into sites that still require flash almost every day. I suppose this may not be true for everyone, but unfortunately it is still widely used from what I can tell.
Also, the title “Chrome to sart blocking Flash later this year” is missing a ‘t’.
Take a stand! Install “Flash block” and sart using it today!
