View Full Version : Google Chrome and Flash... A Match made in H&ll

If you use both, what's your opinion about them together?

I have hard time trying to use them in different computers. They freeze the computer or make everything slow.

AFAIK Chrome does not use Flash so irrespective if it is installed or not any Flash content will be displayed using the Chrome browser...

I have also used Chrome while having Flash installed without any issues... so I don't think there is a generic issue here.

Chrome does use Flash, but if you're running 32 bit, it comes bundled with its own plugin rather than using the one you have installed system-wide. Generally, I've found Google's tweaked Flash plugin to work better than the one available directly from Adobe. I certainly don't experience any freezing or unusual resource usage.

I use Chrome on both Windows and Linux with Flash, and don't have any problems.

I develop for flash. Just so you know, their development system is Windows Oriented...

As for browser stuff, it works fine...

I've used Chrome before, and it doesn't seem to be the Flash.

With Chrome, I was getting problems quite randomly. Sometimes Flash would lag, sometimes web pages would lag, sometimes these forums would lag...

Chrome + Flash works on my netbook which is a 32 bit install. I'm not so sure about the 64 bit installs as I tend to use firefox and have upgraded to flash's x64 beta.
