Editors' Review

Adobe Flash Player 11, the browser extension mainly designed to stream Flash video files in your browser, shows a quantum leap in performance over previous versions. It has a number of new features designed to take full advantage of the newer 64-bit browsers and operating systems available for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS. This makes it a more effective tool for Web developers and anyone who enjoys media-rich applications or sites like YouTube. However, with the improvement come a few headaches that users of certain browsers may encounter.

If you use Google Chrome, there is no need to download Adobe Flash Player 11, as it comes as part of the download package. For those using other browsers, you may be prompted to update depending on your settings. This isn't a program that will be prominent for most users -- it works primarily in the background. And while it can be accessed from the toolbar of your browser, we don't recommend tinkering around with this plug-in unless you're an experienced professional. Web developers will notice it has better integration with browsers' JavaScript console. This version is configured to use system resources more efficiently and provide enhanced high-resolution bitmap support for more detailed and accelerated videos and graphics.

Adobe Flash 11 is not without a few flaws, and users of Google Chrome are most likely to encounter them. Flash Player 11 is subject to freezing up the browser, giving a prompt at the top of a tab saying the player isn't responding, with a prompt to stop it. Once it is stopped, it will restart automatically, but it leaves an annoying message at the top of every open browser tab reporting the obvious fact that it has crashed. Mac users should be aware that it requires OS X 10.6 or higher running on an Intel platform to function properly. For the most part, however, this program brings faster, better graphics that even those who don't understand what a plug-in does will appreciate.
