With Flash enabled in Chrome, whenever you visit a webpage with Flash content, you’ll need to click on the Flash player for it to start. This could be a nuisance if you have to deal with tons of Flash media every day, but otherwise, it’s a safe step to take—if you trust the site!

When you click, you’ll get a notification asking if you want to allow or block Flash for the current site. To run it, click Allow. The page will refresh and the Flash content will start as it should.
