While Adobe Flash will not really die before 2020 and has been blocked by all major browsers in one way or another for several years nowChrome 76 goes even further. Not only individual Flash items are blocked by default, but now all browser functionality is also disabled. If you opt for the beta and you go to chrome: // settings / content / flashyou should see the small parameter "Ask First" disabled instead of, according to 9to5Google.
Another secret tip: the developer of Google Chrome Paul Irish said websites will not be able to detect when your Chrome browser is in incognito mode. This one will hurt publishers like The New York Times who use these detection schemes to prevent you from reading an endless number of free stories – and steer you into paying a subscription.
The Chrome Incognito mode has been detectable for years, thanks to the implementation of the FileSystem API. From Chrome 76, this is fixed.

There is also a fascinating improvement for the dark mode itself. Now, web developers can schedule their sites to automatically broadcast a dark version of their website when they see your Dark Mode browser, apparently just adding a little extra code.
