Chrome Says Goodbye to Flash

Adobe's Flash was one of the innovations that pushed video and dynamic content onto the web many years ago. Today, many sites use HTML 5 instead of Flash as it is more secure, offers better compression and runs faster on most browsers. With the upcoming version of Google's Chrome browser, Flash will be blocked. If your site relies heavily on Flash, you'd better get fixing things so that it will keep running and offer cross-platform compatibility.

Today, more than 90% of Flash on the web loads behind the scenes to support things like page analytics. This kind of Flash slows you down, and starting this September, Chrome 53 will begin to block it. HTML5 is much lighter and faster, and publishers are switching over to speed up page loading and save you more battery life. You’ll see an improvement in responsiveness and efficiency for many sites.
