"Still glacial in rendering flash content."

September 18, 2010  |  By RobertSerafini

 |  Version: Adobe Flash Player 10.1.82.76

Pros

It works but Activity Monitor still shows a huge footprint, even when idling.

Cons

Hog. Jobs is right; Adobe (uncharacteristically) has not made this app as svelte as it has to be. I have a fast machine; on a pico computer (iPhone, etc.) there is simply no excuse for an 800 lb troll lurking to do the work of a helper app.

Summary

Learn you lessons, Adobe. After years of on-again, off-again petulance about developing for the Mac platform, Apple introduced Aperture and Final Cut Pro. How long before they introduce a fly-weight plug-in to emulate Flash in QT? I hope that Jobs keeps up the pressure. Adobe is simply too good a company for cynically bloated software.

"Poorly written plug-in."

September 09, 2010  |  By CyberSkull

 |  Version: Adobe Flash Player 10.1.82.76

Pros

Almost none.

Cons

Most of what Flash is used for can be done with JavaScript/HTML5/CSS3.
Too slow, slows down the whole system.
Does not use Core APIs for hardware acceleration.
Crashes my browsers alot.

Summary

Flash has always been a strange beast. It can't decide if it wants to be an animation tool or a runtime environment. Consequently, it does neither to it's full potential. What Flash does do is strangle my computer's CPU and crash my web browsers. While I have to have it for certain sites and applications, I block it most of the time in web browsers with the wonderful ClickToFlash plug-in. I use it to suppress Flash until I need it.

"Totally arbitrary application"

September 08, 2010  |  By Cyberoid

 |  Version: Adobe Flash Player 10.1.82.76

Pros

Not much. Nice animations?

Cons

It's so fickle that the same browser won't play the same Flash animation twice. Now it's creating an army of tabs, like the Sorcerer's Apprentice only digital. I can't get rid of them without closing the browser.

Summary

I take it that Flash makes web design more efficient, which explains its popularity in the piecework world of web development. For the users, it's a real loss. On this, Steve Jobs is right: Flash exists is in its own world. In a parallel universe. We don't need it.

"I guess it works; I can play Flash"

August 19, 2010  |  By reynsaunders

 |  Version: Adobe Flash Player 10.1.82.76

Pros

It works, I guess.

Cons

Nothing in particular. If it has limitations or problems, I don't see them

Summary

It's a utility; what's to love about something that's supposed to operate behind the scenes and doesn't have a user interface (it doesn't, does it?).
