As reported, a message pops up indicating” Flash is not installed” when users visit a website that runs Flash plug-in. If users click to download Flash, Apple Safari will show it has been installed. Users have to give authority to run Flash on those websites which support Flash.

Google Chrome attempted to ban Flash sharply, however, it made the flash more complicated to run on it instead completely banned it. Google claimed that other websites do not allow to run Flash by default except that ten websites in the world.
