Google Chrome won’t support Adobe Flash Player from 2020

Adobe has officially announced that they won’t be keeping the Flash Player active from 2020. After technologies like HTML5, WebGL etc started to take over, Flash Player looks like a thing of the past. Keeping up with this, Google Chrome has also started showing warning regarding Adobe Flash Support. Google will also disable Flash plugin by the end of 2020 from their Chrome browser.

No more Flash Player in Chrome after 2020

Flash Player has been active from the last 20 years and was used for a variety of online content including playing games, watching videos and run web apps. According to a report by Google, more than 80% of Chrome users on the desktop used to visit a website with Flash content at least once per day.

In 2019, the percentage of such people have dropped to a mere 17%. This indicates that more and more websites have migrated to advanced technologies that don’t require Flash Player plugin.

These web technologies are also boasted to be faster and more reliable than Flash. Currently, Google Chrome asks for permission from the user in case a website needs Flash Plugin to run. Chrome is eventually planning to remove Flash completely by the end of 2020. So if you visit a website by the end of 2020 which will still need Flash Player, you won’t be able to run it properly.

Adobe is now trying to make the internet Flash free and force websites to shift towards faster and more secure technologies. They plan to dump Flash completely by December 2020. If the websites you visit migrate to new web platforms, you won’t notice any issues with their performance.
