Chrome Kills Flash, FTP

Google has released the latest version of the Chrome browser, Chrome 88. This latest edition of Chrome marks the end of the road to two platforms that were once a crucial part of Internet technology.

In 88, Google has removed Flash Player support. In previous versions, Flash Player was disabled by default, but you could opt to turn it on. Those days are over.

It’s also the end of the line for FTP URL support. FTP or File Transfer Protocol is a method of transferring large files. Users will no longer be able to access FTP links from Chrome.

Google says usage of FTP from within a browser is so low it’s not worth the effort to improve and update their current FTP client.
