Chrome/Flash Question
« on: July 17, 2012, 03:29:49 AM »
OK, we know N7 is not supplied with Flash. I lifted this line from the instruction manual 'Flash isnít available with Chrome for Android. If you need Flash, download the Browser from the Google Play Store app'
SO,
1) Is it as simple as that? Just (re) download Chrome from the app store to effectively have it available?
2) Would doing so overwrite the existing app, or add another version of Chrome, thereby using up valuable storage.

And no, sadly my N7 is not yet delivered.

Chrome does not support flash.  Are they talking about downloading another browser (Dolphin, Maxthon, etc.)?

Flash will no longer be updated after next month, will be obsolete, and is being replaced by HTML5.

I had the same question earlier here, if this will help:

Chrome does not support flash.

Actually, I dont think that is quite true. Chrome actually has Flash embedded I believe, rather than using an external lib.
