Google Chrome stable channel has got an update yesterday. This update, version 14.0.835.202, is available for Windows, Mac, Linux and Chrome Frame platforms. The highlight of newer version is support for Adobe Flash Player 11. Flash Player 11 is the latest stable version of Adobe’s cross-browser and cross-platform utility.
Chrome has its own installation of Flash Player which comes bundled with it. Hence, Chrome users don’t need to install or update Flash Player plug-in separately on their computer. To get the latest version of Flash Player for Chrome browser, users need to just update their browser – and thankfully – Chrome follows silent and automatic update. This unique feature of Chrome ensures updated version of browser and associated plug-ins.
New features of Flash Player 11
New features of Flash Player 11 (version 18.104.22.168) include Stage 3D accelerated graphics rendering, Flash Access Content protection enhancements, protected HTTP Dynamic Streaming (HDS), H.264/AVC software encoding for cameras, native JSON support, native 64-bit support and TLS Secure Sockets support. The most awaited feature is native support for 64-bit operating systems and 64-bit web browsers on Linux, Mac OS and Windows.
