Auto-Play Flash ads are a thing of the past on Chrome

Google ChromeAccording to an article on WebDesignLedger (and the article it references over at Ars Technica), as of September 1, 2015, Google’s Chrome browser now blocks auto-playing Flash ads from displaying. These problematic ads annoy users, as they usually start playing on page load at full-volume, leaving the user scrambling to find where the offending ad is coming from and make it stop. This is good news for Chrome users, but will Mozilla Firefox, Opera and Microsoft Edge follow suit?
