Displaying Flash pages in Chromium

Criticisms of Adobe Flash have been persistent for the last decade and it may have reached its height this year. However, use of Flash on the Internet is still pervasive despite Facebook switching over to HTML5. Even IMDB, the popular movie database, still uses Flash when playing trailers.

 
 

If you're running Linux and using Chromium, the open source version of Chrome, you can install the chromium-pepper-flash package, which provides Flash support for Chromium users. The plugin isn't installed with Chromium by default, but can be installed separately if you regularly visit Flash pages.

You can test the Pepper Flash plugin for Chromium on the Adobe.com Flash test site.
