Google integrates Flash into Chrome browser

xtensionsWhile Apple is struggling to implement Flash at all Google has taken a big step forward in the handling of Flash. The software giant and its  open source initiative Chromium has announced that it together with Adobe, Mozilla and the broad community is working toward improving the handling of extensions in browsers. The interface is different in different browsers and overall poorly specified which causes problems with compatibility, performance and security.

Chromium has announced a developers version of Google Chrome where Adobe Flash is integrated into the browser.

  • When users download Chrome, they will also receive the latest version of Adobe Flash Player. There will be no need to install Flash Player separately.
  • Users will automatically receive updates related to Flash Player using Google Chrome’s auto-update mechanism. This eliminates the need to manually download separate updates and reduces the security risk of using outdated versions.
  • With Adobe's help, we plan to further protect users by extending Chrome's “sandbox” to web pages with Flash content.

The new system for handling extensions in browsers will also improve functionality on other fronts, and Google says that extensions handled this way can quickly and safely be implemented integrated into the browsers HTML and JavaScript engines.

Flash soon a part of Google Chrome
