Will Chrome begin requiring permission to run Flash every time in July?

I found a Chrome product roadmap that says that they will be rolling out "Non-Persisted HTML5 by Default"

It says that "sites using Flash will require explicit permission to run, every time the user restarts the browser."

https://www.chromium.org/flash-roadmap#TOC-Non-Persisted-HTML5-by-Default-Target:-Chrome-68---July-2...

Is this true?

Thank you,

Nate

Google has been very transparent about about their roadmap for deprecating Flash Player, and all of the major browser vendors and Adobe are working together towards a graceful deprecation of Flash Player at the of 2020.  I think it's safe to say that Google's engineering blog is an authoritative source for information.In the interim, Google is encouraging content providers to transition to HTML and JavaScript by increasing the amount of friction that end-users experience when trying to use Flash...

How do you expect Adobe to know what Google is going to do with their Chrome browser?

Hi Nate,

You would need to contact Google about their planned roadmap, not Adobe.

Google has been very transparent about about their roadmap for deprecating Flash Player, and all of the major browser vendors and Adobe are working together towards a graceful deprecation of Flash Player at the of 2020.  I think it's safe to say that Google's engineering blog is an authoritative source for information.

In the interim, Google is encouraging content providers to transition to HTML and JavaScript by increasing the amount of friction that end-users experience when trying to use Flash-based content in their browser.  Other browsers are taking similar approaches, and have published their own roadmaps.  In a similar vein, Adobe has announced that Flash Player will reach its end-of-life at the end of 2020.

Adobe provides a number of tools for either converting or producing replacement standards-based content, which developers can take advantage today.  Wherever possible, we'd strongly recommend that content providers begin that migration effort, if they haven't already.
