Chrome Browser To Delete Flash Cookies


Google has implemented a tool into its Chrorme web browser, which allow users to easily delete Adobe Flash Player's Local Shared Objects (LSOs), referred to by some people as "Flash cookies."

Many web users today are aware of browser cookies, and every major browser allows users to view and delete the browser cookies stored on their computer. However, many websites use different types of local storage as well, including Adobe Flash Player Local Shared Objects (LSOs).

In the past, in order to view Flash LSOs and delete them from your computer, you had to visit an online settings application on Adobe's website. To make local storage data deletion easier, Google designed the NPAPI ClearSiteData API. This API, which Adobe has implemented in Flash Player 10.3, has made it possible to delete Flash LSOs directly from the Chrome browser itself.

As of this week's Chrome Dev channel release, you can delete local plug-in storage data (such as Flash LSOs) from within Chrome by clicking Wrench > Tools > Clear browsing data and selecting "Delete cookies and other site and plug-in data."



"Plug-in data" here refers to client-side data stored by plug-ins that obey the NPAPI ClearSiteData API, such as Flash Player 10.3. You can also configure Chrome's content settings to clear plug-in data automatically whenever you close the browser.

Adobe Flash Player is currently the only NPAPI plug-in which has implemented support for the NPAPI ClearSiteData API.

"We believe providing control over plug-in data directly in the browser creates a better experience for both users and website developers," Bernhard Bauer, Software Engineer wrote at The Chromium blog.
