Chome to Automatically pause Flash content like auto-playing ads


Google has recently announced that they be have been working with Adobe in order to make flash more efficient on chrome.

With the newest beta of Google Chrome you can choose a power saving option which will save your PC power by playing less flash content. This means that flash content which isn't "central to a webpage" will be paused. This means that flash animations on the webpage will pause, while you flash video/ or other important flash content will play as normal.

One use for this new feature will be to automatically stop auto-playing video or audio ads from starting, eliminating one of he Internets many plagues. it is expected that chrome will occasionally pause an important piece of content by accident, but you can simply enable it again by clicking it.

This feature will be enables by default in a future version of Google Chrome, but right now is available on the Chrome beta version on Windows, Mac and Linux. It is expected to be in a non-beta release as soon as September of this year.
