Chrome 56 Adds Native FLAC Support

The next version of Chrome will bring support for the FLAC audio codec directly in the browser.

Chrome 56 is currently in the beta channel and should hit stable in about a week. When released, it will bring support for the FLAC audio codec directly in the browser. This will provide a quick way to play those files, with the Mac being the biggest platform to benefit due to a lack of native support.
