Google plans to block Flash on Chrome by end of 2016

These days, HTML5 has become the standard for web media players, and as such, Google is planning to (sort of) rid Chrome of Adobe Flash by the end of 2016. However, Chrome’s new HTML5 framework will still allow users to “always run Flash content” under “Content Settings”, which seems smart considering that so many websites still require the outdated media player. Adobe itself continues its efforts to slowly phase out the program entirely, bringing Adobe Animate CC to the market as its substitute.
