@Priest72 said in Flash per site:
@BoneTone Well your entitled to your opinion of course but i do not share it.
Until the certain flash sites i use shut the door permanently then i shall carry on using flash. I don't think adobe quite realises how much flash content is still out there and that includes commercial as well as public sectors.
It's not my opinion, it's just the state of things. I'm certain Adobe is well aware of how few users will be truly affected by this. I recall about 2 years ago there were only ~17% of users who even saw a piece of Flash, let alone wanted or needed to use it. It's even fewer now.
I was going to bring up the Flashpoint site archiving the legacy Flash around the web that @LonM linked, but I couldn't recall its name. That'll be a good resource for anyone whose favorite games go missing. Articles over the past couple years have been suggesting users download the Flash files so they have them for safe keeping and to be able to run them locally. As well as usual a legacy browser they use solely for the purpose of using Flash.
I'd also like to reiterate my primary point which seems to have been overlooked. Adobe & the browsers aren't doing this to force users to stop using Flash, but to drive developers to use better technologies. Users don't really care -- they just want to access their desired content. Precisely how that content is created & delivered is on the minds of very few users. Come 2021, content delivered through Flash will begin another sharp decline, to become almost extinct. The gaming industry, however, is not going extinct, and legacy games with enough popularity will be ported to new, safer technology. This is a good thing.
@klXXdpag said in Vivaldi disregards Chrome policies:
Is there anything I can set below HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Vivaldi I could set to help me?
No. The local policy has to be set at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Vivaldi
@gwen-dragon said in Allow flash permanently - preferably for an individual site.:
Open Vivaldi internal flags chrome://flags/#enable-ephemeral-flash-permission
Set to Disabled
@observe luckily it is not (really) possible without breaking some other functionality and introduce system services to create history files with user access restrictions.
Since Vivaldi (company) presents itself as a defender of privacy and security (see blog posts) releasing browser software with the mentioned features would undermine core values.
While the deliberate private window breakage flag is likely a feature bug inherited from chrome, any active effort in this direction would make this software no longer "a browser for our friends" but more and more a helper tool for privacy invasion.
