I need a copy of apples replacement for adobe flash.
I have an lmac.
your thoughts appreciated.
There's no replacement for Flash. Fortunately.
you can use Chrome for flash sites (without installing flash)...
If you need Flash, just install Flash.
The Chrome advice is much better tbh. No one should install that piece of crap in 2017.
Installing Chrome *is* installing Flash. It's just a sandboxed piece of crap..
Understand that Chrome does install Flash, it does it within the confines of it's own app. The only difference between installing the regular Flash and Chrome is that the regular Flash you install from Adobe works with any browser, not just Chrome.
OK, let me rephrase: no one should install anything related to Flash at all in 2017 (and even before). Flash hasn't got in touch with any of my computers for years now. And Chrome sux. That's my true opinion.
Chrome doesn't install Flash.. it has flash buit in when you download Chrome browser
"If the built-in Flash Player in Chrome is disabled, Chrome uses the downloaded plug-in version of Flash Player if it is installed on the user’s system."
but your right about separate install
Let's go turn the Wayback Machine to 2010...
The episode became a Wikipedia entry:
And later, in 2012, posts like this one appeared:
There are still some sites around, unfortunately, that require Flash. For example, I bank at Bank of America and they have a feature where you can generate an alias of your credit card number and set date and spending limits on the number. Useful for things like magazine subscriptions that try to auto renew. The rest of the BofA website works fine without Flash, but that CC alias feature requires Flash so I just pop open a Chrome window to get it done.
Dang. That blows. Time for BoA to get off their duff and stop using a deprecated platform.
