Updated Google Chrome Prioritizing HTML5 Websites Over Adobe Flash

Spread the love

It is high time now to bid adieu to Adobe Flash. At least the latest update of Google Chrome points out as the browser has started prioritizing HTML5 on most websites.

Known as Chrome 55, the update is now made available for MacOS, Linux and Windows operating systems after a certain period of testing via the beta channel.

Adobe Flash has been known for causing system vulnerabilities frequently.

Google is confident about Chrome 55.0.2883.75 as it comes with several fixes and improvements and said over the coming days or weeks it will be rolled out to all through a stable channel.


The upgrade is easy and clicking on the three vertical dots button is required and then on About. The downloading of updated Chrome browser will start. If not, it is suggested to click on Relaunch to restart Chrome.

The search giant is continually working on making Chrome better for everyone. Earlier it also tried to work with Microsoft to bring Office 365 to the web browser. However, the deal didn’t work as the software couldn’t be made available for free on all Chromebook latptop computers.
