Google has released a beta version of Chrome 76 with Flash lock

Chrome 76 has a number of changes: the default Flash lock and the incognito mode detection complexity


Lock Adobe Flash Player

In late 2016 and early 2017, Chromeblocked Flash background elements and installed HTML5 by default, while users had to manually turn on the Adobe plugin for each site separately. In July of the same year, Adobe announced it would stop supporting Flash, and Google promised to remove the plugin from its browser by the end of 2020.

Beta version of Chrome 76 blocks by defaultFlash in the browser. However, by going to chrome: // settings / content / flash, users can still switch back to the “Ask first” option. In this case, the browser will ask each time whether it is necessary to start Flash.

Incognito mode

Many sites with a paid subscription did not allowbrowse the pages in incognito mode, which some used to circumvent the limit on the number of free articles. Previously, the company reported that with the new Chrome update this will change and so it happened.

Chrome 76 beta fixed the API FileSystem so that sites can no longer use this “loophole” to detect incognito mode.

What else

Google has also added several new features fordevelopers. For example, they can now program sites so that they automatically switch to the dark version when the night mode is on.
