Hell yeah, Chrome is finally going to block Flash

Flash Chrome
It's been years since Flash did anything useful, unless you count munching on all my RAM as 'useful.'

In a blog post today, Google announced the next step in ridding Flash from Chrome. Starting with Chrome 53 in September, the browser will automatically block background Flash content. In December, Google will go further, and only show the HTML5 version of websites. If a site is Flash-only (because apparently that's still a thing!) you will have to specifically enable Flash for that site. Or, y'know, go back and make a note never to visit again.

In short, proprietary plugins like Adobe Flash will be disabled by default when browsing the web.

This means that websites will serve modern HTML5 representations of content as often as possible as they will not be able to detect an installation of Flash at all. Safari is smart however — it will allow you to enable Flash temporarily on demand …
