Google reportedly plans to start blocking Flash-based content on Chrome in the fourth quarter of this year and implement HTML5 by default. According to the company’s “intent to implement” post on Google Groups, the browser will block Flash content on websites and only the top ten domains will have Flash enabled by default. These ten websites were selected based on Chrome’s internal metrics and includes YouTube, Yahoo, Facebook, Twitch, Amazon, and more. Google says that this is to “reduce the initial user impact and avoid over-prompting”. This whitelist will expire after a year, and will be refreshed periodically to remove those sites whose use does not require an exception anymore.
