Question- Flash Player

I was wondering because once in a while will be required to turn Flash On. So I set it on all the time and now there is a message that it will no longer be supported- I do use Chrome.

There is a difference between Flash and Flash Player.
Steve Jobs identified Flash as a vector that could carry viruses and malware into the Mac Operating System so made it more and more unwieldily to use it in Safari, the Mac browser of choice.
And as has been mentioned HTML 5 took over many of the functions of Flash a while ago.
