Google's Chrome browser will (almost) kill off Flash support by December
Google has announced plans to slowly kill off support in its Chrome browser for most websites that use Adobe's Flash by December in favor of HTML5 sites.
While the use of Flash on websites has diminished in the past few years, there are still some sites that use it. In a blog post. Google stated:
HTML5 will become the default way to view websites with the release of Chrome 55 in December, according to Google. The only exceptions will be sites that only use Flash, in which case the browser will prompt used to enable Flash when they visit the site.

However, things come and go and the time for both Shockwave and Flash to retire has come.
Heck, the Crackberry and MSPowerUser websites are way better to use.
A lot of times, it is the screen resolution and connection type that causes websites like YouTube to limit what settings you see. For example, if you use a desktop with VGA or DVI connection, you will only see up to 720p res but for those with DisplayPort and HDMI they will see up to 8K (again depending on screen resolution and connection type)
Chrome supported 4k and 60 fps youtube videos before any browser and they work perfectly on my PC Ayyyyy lmao
