So, rumors were true. Google Chrome team has announced a deal with Adobe which integrates Flash in to Google Chrome browser.
What will you get ?
No need of downloading flash or updating flash on your own !
- When users download Chrome, they will also receive the latest version of Adobe Flash Player. There will be no need to install Flash Player separately.
- Users will automatically receive updates related to Flash Player using Google Chromeâ€™s auto-update mechanism. This eliminates the need to manually download separate updates andÂ reduces the security risk of using outdated versions.
- With Adobe’s help, we plan to further protect users by extending Chrome’s â€œsandboxâ€ to web pages with Flash content.
This feature is now available on Google Chrome developer channel. ( Click Here if you want to know how to change to developer channel ) Soon this feature will be available for all Google Chrome Users, making it more stable and fast, as far as handling Flash content is concerned.
How to Enable
add –enable-internal-flash to your command line or shortcut for starting Google Chrome. ( Detailed steps available here, just change the code )
More Info – A Â basic plug-in manager
Google has integrated Adobe Flash Player 10.1.51.95 (10.1 beta 3) in to Google Chrome. The best part of the deal is, no more separate Flash downloads, or updates ! Google Chrome’s auto update manager will take care of this.
A basic plug-in manager also has been added to Google chrome. The about:plugins page now lets you disable any plug-in from loading on all web pages.
Apple is going away from flash, and Chrome is walking towards Flash, tightly integrating it with the browser and OS. This will be pretty interesting to watch in the coming days !
