Chrome Plugin Warning

Does the Web GUI use flash or another plugin? I'm able to use it without it enable, but I receive a warning.

The interface uses flash for display objects and animations to visualize the device status and some reports.

You can still perform all configuration functions without flash enabled, just some objects will not display correctly.

Are there any plans to eliminate Flash usage and say, go to using HTML 5?

Flash always seems like a security hole, and if we can avoid using it, the better.

Just my 2 cents.

Seems like using Flash isn't a good idea anymore.

You'll need to direct product roadmap questions to your account team.  Palo Alto does not make any public statements about future feature releases.  They only release this information under non-disclosure agreements via the sales team channel.

Hi Guys,

The App-Scope section of the Monitor tab was flash-based in pre-6.1 versions of code, but in 6.1 and later it is HTML5 and as far as I know there's no other flash in the web interface.  Are you guys noticing contradictory information?
