Google Chrome Flash Player Warning

You may have noticed that Google Chrome stopped enabling Adobe Flash Player by default from version 76 and onwards. This is annoying when you require it for certain flash websites that use flash (some video content sites for example) but you can easily re-enable it.

However, you may have noticed when opening Google Chrome that Flash Player will no longer be supported from December 2020:

This seems to be from version 76.0.3809.100 and is pretty annoying that it keeps appearing. Once is enough thanks Google!

But, for now, you can still enable Adobe Flash within the Google Chrome settings.
