Have you been seeing stories in your newsfeed and on the news about Google Chrome blocking Flash by default? Do not worry, there is no need to call for Chicken Little just yet. Your Dirt Farmer team has the scoop for you on what to expect. Check out the details below and please do share...
First of all, it is true that Google is moving toward making HTML5 the default user experience. However this will have little effect on our ability to play FarmVille on Chrome. Let's take a look at some slides from the presentation that Google made to announce this change. (To view the entire slideshow yourself, click here).
The below slide is enough to cancel any alarm on it's own. It assures us that Flash will still be bundled with Chrome, that the top 10 flash-using sites will continue to have it run for a year uninterrupted (Facebook is one of these) and that after that we will have options to allow flash to run.
Another handy piece of information in this slide is that your choice will be saved for future use on the same site.
If you want to use flash on a site, while it may be a slightly different method to set than it currently is, the option will be there for you. When Google announces the final version, we shall update you on how to allow flash.
If you just don't want to deal with Flash more than once, there will also be an option in the content settings section of your browser to always allow flash to run. You can do this for the browser or individual sites.
(again we will provide directions when finalized, as methods may change, this is not expected to roll out until the 4th quarter of 2,016)
Do not worry, despite the fear-mongering headlines around the web, you will still be able to play FarmVille on Chrome, via the methods listed above.
That's all for now, stay tuned to the Dirt Farmer for all the latest FarmVille news and information.
