Google has improved Flash sandboxing in the latest version of its Chrome browser for Windows, boosting its security and reducing crashes by as much as 20 percent.By sandboxing Flash, a plug-in can crash without taking down the rest of the browser. Sandboxing was introduced in early versions of Chrome to prevent rogue tabs from causing such total browser crashes, and as an anti-malware measure.If you have been experiencing crashes or other stability issues while running Flash contents in the browser, you may welcome another benefit of the change: Flash crashes have been reduced by 20% after switching from NPAPI to PPAPI thanks to the elimination of legacy code.
Windows 8 users will also benefit from the change, as Chrome for the thing that was formerly known as Metro can now make all Flash contents available just like Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 10 can.
