Chrome will begin to block Flash in September

As you know, many of the browsers that are now available on the Internet begin to block Flash soon. Among the reasons it is causing blockages, excessive consumption of resources and, of course, security failures, which have had serious consequences for many users. Not surprisingly, the number of infections has dropped as users have begun to uninstall the plug.

Google is one of the companies that begin blocking Flash soon. Specifically, in their Chrome browser. A few weeks ago already announced the movement, although it had finally been decided to complete the operation in the 53 software version. In this way, the browser will act by default and will eliminate a part of the compatibility with Flash, avoiding that can be run in a free manner and by default.

We should note that version 53 of Chrome will be available during the month of September, although this does not mean complete blocking of Flash, but a small part of it. The removal, so to speak, the complement will be held in version 55, when we will have only the options to play content in HTML5.

The Flash blocking will not only allow that Chrome is more secure, but also that the loading of pages is done in a faster way. Not surprisingly, you do not need to load this type of multimedia content, focusing almost exclusively on those which are manufactured with HTML5. Of course, you should be aware that other browsers are also following the same path, which means that the presence of Flash is declining. Some even admit that the movements are a step forward in terms of safety and performance.
