In early Feb 2014 it was only displaying the first 3 sections of the Flash version number, which has 4 sections. As of May 2015, the bug was back, it reported only that v17.0.0 was installed.The bug still existed July 15, 2015 (Chrome on Windows 7 reported that version 18.0.0 was installed).Adobe used to have a fourth Flash tester but sometime in Jan 2014 or earlier, it was merged into the above. 2014) FLASH PLAYER on CHROME OS (created Oct 15, 2015) I ran into an interesting wrinkle while logged on as a Guest user on a Chromebook.The upside to being a guest user is that you always start with a virgin copy of the operating system.I have said this here for years and now it is more true than ever.For one thing, Chrome does a painless (if at times less than perfect) job of keeping the Flash Player up to date with bug fixes.The version history below lets you judge just how old a given instance of the Flash Player is and how many bug fixes its missing.OTHER ADOBE FLASH TESTERS Adobe has a second un-named tester page at adobe.com/swf/software/flash/about/flash About_info_that displays the installed version number in a huge font (also available with insecure HTTP). But, that's all it does, there is no indication of whether the installed version is current or not.
As of Chrome OS version 46 (and probably earlier versions too), Google defaults to "Detect and run important plugin content".The Metro/Tile World/Modern edition of IE on Windows 8.x does not support Flash.
