Google Chrome to Block Flash Player By Default Starting Later This Year

Posted by · 10850 views · Translate
Google has announced that it will start blocking Flash Player by default in its Chrome browser later this year.

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

To ease users into the change, Chrome is whitelisting the top ten Flash domains for one year. The list, which can be seen below, will be revisited periodically to see if any changes need to be made. Enterprise users will be able to set policies related to the feature, including the ability to disable it.

The top 10 domains using Flash are:
● YouTube.com
● Facebook.com
● Yahoo.com
● VK.com
● Live.com
● Yandex.ru
● OK.ru
● Twitch.tv
● Amazon.com
● Mail.ru
