If the website provides support for HTML5, chrome will default render HTML5 player.
Of course, the Chrome browser will still provide the Flash plug-in. When the user opens a Flash page, it will be on the top of the pop-up options to ask whether the user is loaded, this time the user can change the site for always load Flash or load only once.

In recent years, there has been a voice calling for the use of HTML5 video to replace the existing Flash video.
Although Flash along with the Internet for many years, but in fact, Flash has been two can not completely solve the problem, one is safe, one is the energy consumption.
Flash has been the focus of hacker attacks. Last year November information security company recorded future research report said, flash has become the most favored by hackers to attack, in the survey ranked the top ten vulnerabilities in, the top eight were flash vulnerabilities, and after Foxfire has because of loopholes in the flash once disabled Flash Plug-in.
