We all know that Adobe Flash Player as a software that allows us to watch online videos which had a pivotal role in adoption of video, gaming and animation on the internet. But it won’t be wrong to say that the software has become outdated and HTML5 is taking its place.
Earlier this week, Google said in its blog that the company’s Chrome 53 web browser will block Flash from next month.
Google argued that HTML5 has much faster page load times as well as better security and lower power consumption compared to Flash which is why people are switching over to the former.
The tech giant made a similar move earlier when it made Flash content click-to-play on Chrome 42, resulting in significantly faster load times and lower power consumption for users.
Google plans on eventually curtailing Flash use and has also mentioned to make HTML5 the default experience in Chrome 55 for all sites except those that support Flash only.
“Flash helped make the Web a rich, dynamic experience, and shaped the modern set of web standards. We continue to work closely with Adobe to ensure that your web experience is as fast and secure as possible and to help the Web transition to HTML5” Google said.
