Google has finally released the much-awaited update of its Web browser app, Google Chrome. Yes, Google Chrome 76 has been released and it is now updated for everyone. The search giant is eliminating the need for flash in the latest update of Google Chrome.
Until now, Google Chrome web browser was blocking the Flash objects on the browser app. But this new Chrome 76 makes it easier for you. This update doesn’t require any special Flash software on your system. Flash will be completely blocked on the latest Chrome and it will not be loaded.
The Flash will be blocked by default on the latest Chrome but there is an option to enable this feature. You can enable this Flash by visiting the Settings menu on your Chrome browser. You must have to give permission to the sites to use Flash even if you have enabled them from the Settings menu.
Apparently, this update is very good for the users’ safety as it will make unwanted flash ads and other announcements blocked. By the end of the year 2020, Chrome will block the Flash completely. As per the Chromium update, the flash will be blocked by default.
Apart from blocking Flash, the latest update of Chrome brings a couple of new features to the app. They have improved the Progressive Web Apps with the latest update. Chrome has also blocked websites from knowing whether the user is exploring the web through its Incognito mode.
Many websites detect the location of the users through IP addresses even if they use Incognito mode. Now, the latest update of Chrome has blocked down this tracking feature. Websites won’t be able to locate you and your IP Address. It will be completely secure when you use Incognito mode on your system.
Progressive Web Apps are web-based services and they are designed to mimic the look and original feel of local apps. There is a special Omnibox button available on Chrome allowing users to install such apps quickly. You can also use it within the Address Bar for easy and quick access.
