Flash

As announced in this blog post, Google is beginning the process of making HTML5 the default browser experience over Flash. CloudReady v55.2 includes those changes, so be aware in case you observe some unexpected behavior on sites that depend on Flash. This slide deck by Google is a very good reference to have in terms of understanding the user experience expectations. If you are having some difficulties viewing sites that require Flash and want to follow the recommended path for enabling Flash, follow these steps:

1) Confirm installation of the Adobe Flash plugin in the Settings menu, if it is not installed - please install it

2) Check 'Content settings' under the 'Privacy' section in the Setting menu. Select 'Ask first' option

3) Navigate to chrome://plugins and verify Adobe Flash Player is enabled and the 'Always allowed to run' checkbox is unchecked

4) Navigate to a site with known Flash requirements. Screenshots below use Spotify and enable the site to allow Flash use. After you've done this once, Chrome will respect the setting for that site going forward.
