Google Chrome will Start Blocking Flash by Default


Google Chrome Stop Support to Adobe Flash Player

Chrome browser of Google will stop its support to Adobe’s Flash Player on almost all websites by the end of this year. Staff member, Anthony LaForge while posting to Google groups, had defined the plan of the company to stop automatically permitting Flash to run on websites. The plan intended to be implemented by the fourth quarter of 2016 would be seeing HTML5 replacing Flash as a much integrated media experience with quicker load times and less power consumption.

LaForge had mentioned that `if a site offers an HTML5 experience, this change would make that the main experience’. They will continue to ship Flash Player with Chrome and if a site really needs Flash, a prompt would be appearing at the top of the page when the user first tends to visit that site, providing the options of allowing it to run for that site. But the top ten website utilizing Flash would not have it disabled, according to Google. Presently the ten biggest website as per Google are Amazon, YouTube, Facebook,, Yahoo,, Yandex.rv,, and, though these may be changing towards the end of the year.

Proposal Document Outlining Change

Whitelisted websites would be having their Flash use secured for a year though it will also be reviewed during a period of 12 months. Proposal document outlining how the change would take place had been online by LaForge:

  • Flash would still be bundled with Chrome though would not be advertised by default 
  • If HTML5 is provided by a website, Chrome would automatically default to it 
  • If Flash Player is essential, a user would be prompted 
  • When a user accepts the page will get refreshed and Flash will appear on any following visits to the domain

Latest Backlash against Adobe Flash

The move is said to be the latest in on-going backlash against Adobe Flash and the platform was used to create animations, web pages as well as games from the early 2000s. However, it has been slowly replaced with more open web standards. Adobe had said, in November, that it was time for developers to move away from using Flash. The company had mentioned in a blog post that they encourage content creators to build with new web standards and would continue to focus on offering the best tools and services for designers as well as developers in creating amazing content for the web.

In July 2015, Mozilla had blocked all the versions of Flash in its Firefox browser. During the time Mozilla had said that Flash would stay blocked till Adobe releases a version which was not being actively exploited by publicly known susceptibilities and the block had been lifted few days thereafter. The death of Flash had been slow and painful with Google now planning to deal with another blow.

Google has plans to begin blocking most of Flash content with Chrome and the changeover is targeted to the end of the year. Under its existing vision, almost every website would be having Flash content blocked by default and visitors will still be capable of enabling Flash content on a site-by-site basis though would have to specially opt to do so. Flash has been a threat on battery life and is constantly found to have severe security errors and hence its ultimate disappearance would be accepted.

Updated Version of Chrome and Skype Apps

Skype Apps
After Twitter as well as Instapaper, Microsoft has launched the updates of Skype while Google has also done the same in case of Chrome apps for the latest iOS 8 operating system. The apps now consist of a lot of interesting features.

Updated Google Chrome-

Many iPhone users and iPad customers are inclined to use Google Chrome for their internet browsing requirements prior to Apple's own ideal and striking Safari app. Chrome is not only fast, clean, and spontaneous, but also syncs flawlessly with the even more accepted desktop version.

With the launching of iOS-8 operating system, Apple's Safari achieved the ability of being competent to share links to the third party applications.

Google has put in the same facility to Chrome. Now, while a user goes into the Share feature in the major Chrome menu, he will be presented with the similar sharing alternatives as can be found in the system of iOS 8. In addition the default Message, email, and Facebook options, he can press the ‘more’ button and insert third party apps such as Facebook or Pinterest and many more.

As soon as it is activated, the user will be capable to send web stories directly to these well-suited apps for reading it or sharing it, or whatever the selected app does with these things.

It is not fairly the numerous and ultra-functional extensions available on the web version of the Chrome, and obviously the Android version of Google Chrome has presented such a characteristic now. Still, it is an admired offering given that now holds up third-party app extensions for posting as well as sharing content to some other websites.

For example, the iOS 8 users at present can send a website page in their read-later facility of Pocket through the Chrome browser, and are able to share these on LinkedIn. The latest edition of Google Chrome can be downloaded for free of cost from the iOS App Store.

Updated Skype App-

The Skype app has also been updated for iPhone or the iPod with support for the system of iOS 8. But, unfortunately, it does not take in the support in case of iPhone 6 as well as 6 Plus screen sizes. The recent version of Skype i.e. v5.5 also makes use of interactive notification method of iOS 8 and allows users to reply or decline voice or even video calls or get text conversations straight from the lock screen and notice centre.

There are also the options to reply in words for the missed calls. Users can use the stated options by swiping to the left side from the lock screen or the pull down notifications section.

Google Chrome 34.0 with Hands-Free Google Voice Search

OK Google
Google has just announced the arrival of the Chrome 34 Beta. With the full support of the Web Audio API, this helps the developers without prefixing their audio tag for the browser. The work of developers will be a little easier with Beta version of Google Chrome browser. The developer may use it or not that is up to them and several features of the version announced by Google in beta, will simplify integration.

In general, advance features are always available on every release of the new version of Chrome. Several new features are announced now also that includes the control "hands” with the simple phrase “OK Google". First, the arrival of simplified images responsive design writing is possible with this new version. We will not repeat the arguments of Google in its entirety - roughly what everyone knows, uses evolve with new appliances and therefore various screen sizes - but there is the arrival of the attribute ' srcset for the image tag. Here is the sample code provided by Google:

<img alt  =  " A rad wolf  . " src = " pic1x.jpg " srcset = " pic1x.jpg 1x, 2x pic2x.jpg , pic4x.jpg 4x ">

This solution, which allows you to easily manage images in responsive design is simple. This new feature was already expected, especially as the Webkit rendering engine incorporated in August 2013. Blink - rendering engine Webkit fork and developed by Google since version 28 of Chrome – hence it was easy to make it possible.

 The attribute can also declare different sources for the image sizes, which will be displayed depending on the configuration of the browser visiting a site. A solution which should also help solve performance problems often encountered with the multiplication of images. Attribute ' src' is now optional. For now, however it will always think the declare fallback for some other browsers that would support not ' srcset. Until now, developers should indeed increase the prefixes for the audio rendering.

The solution validated by the W3C Web Audio via a Javascript API audio decoding. Quite powerful and advanced, it was not supported. Google is announcing that henceforth there will be no need to prefix some API entry points. Exit the 'web kit audio Context' for example, the point specified by the W3C ' audio Context ' in details.

Same for 'Offline Audio Context’. Chrome and Firefox supports the Web Audio API without prefix. Need redundant code for compatibility on both browsers. Note that both methods should continue side by side for the moment, to allow time for developers to change their code. That said that they have an incentive to take the front. Google has already announced that the management of prefixes may be impaired from a future version of the browser, unspecified.
