    HTML5 by default: Google’s plan to make Chrome’s Flash click-to-play

    HTML5 by default: Google’s plan to make Chrome’s Flash click-to-play

    Google will be taking another step towards an HTML5-only Web later this year, as the systematic deprecation and removal of Flash continues.

    In a plan outlined last week, Flash will be disabled by default in the fourth quarter of this year. Embedded Flash content will not run, and JavaScript attempts to detect the plugin will not find it. Whenever Chrome detects that a site is trying to use the plugin, it will ask the user if they want to enable it or not. It will also trap attempts to redirect users to Adobe's Flash download page and similarly offer to enable the plugin.

    There will be a few exceptions to this policy, with Google planning to leave Flash enabled by default on the top 10 domains that depend on the plugin. This list includes YouTube, Facebook, Twitch, and Amazon. Even this reprieve is temporary. The plan is to remove sites from the list whenever possible—Twitch, for example, is switching to HTML5 streaming, so should start to phase out its use of Flash—and after one year the whitelist will be removed entirely. This means that after the fourth quarter 2017, Flash will need to be explicitly enabled on every site that tries to use it.

    Despite all of Flash's failings, I find this move from Google, disheartening. I for one am not fond of the HTML5 video and music functions, not nearly the control options as flash. I have to wonder in the long run, if this may not harm Chrome more than help them.
