One feature on the internet that has become somewhat less useful is Adobe Flash and the programs it used to run. So much so that Google Chrome stopped supporting Flash a while back. But that does not mean that these games and programs on different websites cannot be viewed on Google Chrome. It’s just that for those websites, it has to be activated for those games and programs to run.

Flash used to support some neat games and programs back in its hayday. If and when you do feel like looking back at those things, it does not necessarily mean another browser needs to be used for the process. Here in this article we will explain how you can still access Flash programs and webpages with Google Chrome.
