Karen Grunberg on the Chrome team:

This build fixes a security issue with Adobe Flash.

Flash for Android dies tomorrow. It’s time Google killed it on the web too. I get their initial rationale behind baking it in to Chrome (security, mainly and the “complete web”), but now it’s just propping it up — and in a big way since Chrome is now the most popular browser.

But, but, but so many sites (and especially ads) still use Flash in some way, they’ll say. Sure, but if the world’s most popular browser ended support, we’d see that fade quickly. Just look at what happened on the mobile web thanks to iOS.

Google: let Flash die.
