Today Google made available an initial integration of Flash Player with Chrome in the developer channel. This the result of the collaboration between Adobe and Google and more will come from this collaboration, so stay tuned.
From Chromium blog:
- 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 This eliminates the need to manually download separate updates and reduces the security risk of using outdated versions.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.
What is even more interesting is that we are working with Google, Mozilla, and others on a new API that will improve the integration between plug-ins and browsers. This API will replace the venerable NPAPI and it will make the browser/plug-ins combo much faster, reliable, and secure.
