Risk in updating internet browser
At one point, I was viewing a single web page and the Chromebook was sluggish.
I used Shift-Escape to bring up the Google Chrome Task Manager and saw that the Flash plugin was using a lot of ram and CPU cycles.
Each packaging of the Flash Player is independent, so one of Adobe's Flash tester pages (linked to above) needs to be run in each installed browser.I killed the Flash process, but it soon came back even though I was still on the same web page.Annoyingly, if you want to block Flash content by default, Guest users on Chrome OS need to change the plugin action to "Let me choose when to run plugin content" every time they logon. FLASH PLAYER on WINDOWS (needs to be revised for Windows 10) My Recommendation: (last updated Feb 15, 2015) Windows users should only use Flash in the Chrome browser.It is packaged one way for use with Internet Explorer (an Active X control) and another way (referred to as the plugin version) for use with Firefox and Opera.Then along came Chrome with its own embedded copy, an idea that Microsoft copied with the desktop edition of Internet Explorer 10 and 11 on Windows 8.
