    google Chrome will start blocking some Adobe Flash content 063016. HTML5 is its replacement and Adobe will providing HTML5 tools in its development kits. using a copy of Safari that is flash free and ~90% web sites run just fine. Today i removed it from my firefox as: Tools->Add-ons->Plugins set Flash = "Never Activated"

    I don't know about this from personal experience, someone told me. I'm as chaste as a nun in a convent.   icon_rolleyes.gif

    What is slightly sad though is that Chrome will still have Flash on by default for the 10 most popular sites that use it - the number 1 site being Youtube. Which is owned by Google, who own Chrome.

    Once they shift Youtube over fully to HTML5, demand for Flash will drop - and maybe even the porn sites will stop using it!

    I had a day in hell last week when my pc started misbehaving. The Start menu stopped working, but only after I opened the MS browser Edge. The problem came and went randomly. I finally threw in the towel and decided to just wipe my hard drive and reinstall Windows. Which went just fine. Back in the Windows 95 days it was generally a good idea to do a clean install every 6 months or so. Maybe that's also true now with Windows 10.

    Anyhow, while installing the drivers for my video card, network, etc. I decided to flash my BIOS to the latest. Then my motherboard got stuck in the BIOS flash mode and would not come out of it. It was looking like I was going to have to send it back to the maker, in Indiana. But the next day I called their tech support and he had me unplug all external devices (monitors, speakers, etc.) and that got it unstuck (some sort of grounding problem, perhaps a floating ground or ground loop, whatever those are).

    One of the things I had installed several weeks ago was Flash, no idea if it was the culprit (I doubt it), but I ain't going there again.
