    Starting in September, the Google Chrome web browser will no longer automatically show Adobe Flash advertisements, the search giant announced yesterday.

    Chrome is the second most popular browser for desktop and laptop computers, with about 28% market share, behind only Microsoft Internet Explorer, according to NetMarketShare.

    The change, first announced in June, is just Google's latest attack against Adobe Flash.

    Google Chrome will start blocking Adobe Flash ads today

    Internet ads that use Adobe Flash will be blocked onGoogle Chrome as of Tuesday, the Wall Street Journalreports.

    Google has chosen to do this because Flash technology increases page-loading times and kills battery more quickly, overall decreasing the quality of the Chrome experience. The Flash ads will still be available, but users will have to click on them to get them to play.

    Hey... So, whats gonna happens with flash based advertisements? I think guys involved in it should think about a contingency plan now. I am still puzzle about the strategy of Google. I mean flash content is just like an integral part of web development these days. How they are going to segregate between bad content and good content ?. How they are going to manage the interactive websites ? may be there is a lot to come a head. Lets see what happens....

    Yeah, you know that flash was deprecated on many tablets and many phones sometime back because of the heavy code as well as some security issues.
