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

Chrome 76 makes a number of changes: blocking Flash by default and making it harder for incognito mode to be detected for


Blocking Adobe Flash Player

Late 2016 and early 2017 Chromeblocked background Flash elements and set HTML5 by default, requiring users to manually enable the Adobe plugin on a site-by-site basis. In July of that year, Adobe announced it would end support for Flash, and Google promised to remove the plugin from its browser by the end of 2020.

Chrome 76 beta 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 Flash needs to be launched.

Incognito mode

Many paid subscription sites did not allowbrowse in incognito mode, which some have used to bypass the limit on the number of free articles. The company previously announced that this would change with the new Chrome update, and that's exactly what happened.

In Chrome 76 beta, the FileSystem API was fixed 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 to automatically switch to a dark version when night mode is enabled.
