Help me Please FAST !  

I want to know what this means that since 2020 we can no longer use this site, xat.com, which is based on flash? Saying goodbye to Flash in Chrome

Today, Adobe announced its plans to stop supporting Flash at the end of 2020.

For 20 years, Flash has helped shape the way you play games, watch videos and run applications on the web. But over the last few years, Flash has become less common. Three years ago, 80 percent of desktop Chrome users visited a site with Flash every day. Today usage is only 17 percent and continues to decline.

This trend reveals that sites are migrating to open web technologies, which are faster and more power-efficient than Flash. They are also more secure, so you can be safer while shopping, banking, or reading sensitive documents. They also work on both mobile and desktop, so you can visit your favorite site anywhere.

These open web technologies became the default experience for Chrome late last year when sites started needing to ask for your permission to run Flash. Chrome will continue phasing out Flash over the next few years, first by asking for your permission to run Flash in more situations, and eventually disabling it by default. We will remove Flash completely from Chrome towards the end of 2020.

If you regularly visit a site that uses Flash today, you may be wondering how this affects you. If the site migrates to open web standards, you should notice much difference except that you will no longer see prompts to run Flash on that site. If the site continues to use Flash, and you give the site permission to run Flash, it will work through the end of 2020.

Has taken a lot of close work with Adobe, other browsers, and major publishers to make sure the web is ready to be Flash-free. We support Adobe's announcement today, and we look forward to working with everyone to make the web even better.

It's true, Flash will not work at the end of 2020, but that doesn't mean you won't be able to use xat.com


Admins are already working on the HTML5 version of xat, so once Flash stops working at all, you will still be able to use xat with HTML5, so don't worry.


If you want to try using the HTML5 version of xat, just add ?new to the end of the chat you are visiting. For example: xat.com/Help?new
