Google is planning the demise of Flash in the Chrome browser, with the beginning of the end coming next month with the release of Chrome 53. Google is starting with "tiny and non-visible Flash content, such as tracking and fingerprint cookies," and will later remove support for Flash altogether in Chrome 55 with some exceptions planned for "sites which only support Flash." Chrome 55 is expected to be available in December of this year and with it, HTML5 looks to become the new default for web browsers.

Now we only need sites to stop using flash and jaza entirely.

<span style="font-size:18px;"><strong>Holy c*** I don't know how that happened or how it got fixed. Which is the very worst kind of fixed.</strong></span> <img src="<a data-ipb='nomediaparse' href='http://folding.extre...igimage.gif"><adata-ipb='nomediaparse' <a>href='http://wigle.net'><img</a> <a data-ipb='nomediaparse' href='src='>src="http://wigle.net/bi/CFr15LujaQwHZgiAc222zw.png"</a> alt="CFr15LujaQwHZgiAc222zw.png"></a>

I do not like Chrome at all. The fact that Chrome is owned by Google means that, like Win 10 and IE, it will soon be very intrusive. Big Brother watching gives me real concern..........
