Use Chromium from Lite Software it's almost identical to Chrome and will play flash. Don't run Chrome when they stop supporting it.

Hello!

What about Netflix?

Not that 32-bit machines play Netflix very well - if at all, mind you, but will have to see if I am able how to somehow patch WidevineCdm into Chromium. These machines are woefully inadequate to run the Firefox Netflix hack again...
