Unfortunately, Adobe Flash Player has become more of a nuisance than anything else recently. The program used to be a must-have for browsing because it was responsible for loading the vast majority of multimedia content on the Internet. But Flash started malfunctioning in more than one respect. For one, it became quite a security nightmare, being singlehandedly responsible for a wide array of malware being passed around.
But the main problem with Adobe Flash Player is that it lost its functionality. Instead of ensuring a smooth browsing experience, Flash became the very thing that made everything freeze, crash or glitch. Instead of improving our browsing, Adobe Flash Player turned our browsers into an unresponsive mess. The world turned once again towards the old and trustworthy HTML5 platform.
Flash No Longer Enabled by Default
Google Chrome thankfully no longer enables Adobe Flash Player by default. Android is also steering clear from it, and iOS never had it to begin with. Apple seems to have been the wisest here, but it’s good that Google are now disabling it as well. However, you can still use Adobe Flash Player if you really want to. If you want to keep on using Flash to load pages instead of HTML5, you need to know that it still sometimes crashes. But there is a solution for that. Keep reading to find out what it is.
Stop Flash from Crashing in Chrome
Adobe Flash Player no long crashes in the newest version of Google Chrome. So the only thing you need to do is make sure your browser is up to date. In order to do so, you can go to the Help menu and visit the About Google Chrome section. You will find out if Chrome is updated there.
