Google Chrome 55 to Fix Existing Vulnerabilities and Block Flash Based Analytics…
Yes, you heard it right, the rumors are true. The Adobe Flash plugin will no longer be available on updated Google Chrome. Chrome 55 as we call it, will prioritize HTML5 for most web pages. Why? Because this media software was really annoying. Flash was known for causing system vulnerabilities a number of times. Probably that’s why the developers launched Google Chrome 55 for Linux, Mac and Windows OS computers.
Why Google Chrome 55 is Better?
Chrome 55.0.2883.75 is furnished with better features. They’ve identified 26 patches, 10 security fixtures and CSS automatic hyphenation. If you use Chrome 55 for MacOS, you can hyphenate words, which definitely improves the aesthetics of text blocks.
In case of Android, this newer update allows access to a variety of download features that let you view offline videos, images and web pages. That’s actually cool.
Earlier, Google users had the option to block Flash plugin by accessing the ‘Settings’ menu. They could reactivate the plugin as and when required. However, webmasters have favored HTML5 over Flash because it loads faster. They’ve been testing a beta version for long and thus, they’ve come with Chrome 55. It’s more efficient, safer and power-savvy.
It is available on most shopping sites including Amazon.
How can You Upgrade it to the Newest Version?
You can easily update your earlier browser to Google Chrome 55 by clicking on the ‘3 vertical dots or lines’ icon available on your browser tab. Hit the icon to access the ‘About’ section. Search for the update option then download the update. Once it’s installed, you can relaunch the browser to get it running.
In a way, Google surely knows how to stay in limelight. Not long ago, the company had collaborated with Microsoft to launch Office 365 in their Chromebook. Then there was Pixel XL and now Chrome 55. In future, they’ll be giving Apple, Mozilla and other companies a run for their money if they continue roping in new innovations all the time.
