"Its not available for the PowerPC Macs,"

February 26, 2011  |  By noknots1

 |  Version: Adobe Flash Player 10.2.152.26

Pros

Can't give any since I don't have Snow Leopard or an Intel processor and am pissed they are not supporting us, some of us just don't have the money to update

Cons

We don't have the money to keep updating computers and now they are not supporting Power PC 10.5.8 unless I go buy a new computer with Intel processor. Retired/Disabled people can't do this in this economy, we need to pay bills and eat

Summary

I think it was a bad move on Adobe to not continue to support the Power PC's, they should rethink and continue to support us until Lion comes out at least.

"Another Piece of Adobe Junk"

February 25, 2011  |  By tkendel

 |  Version: Adobe Flash Player 10.2.152.26

Pros

Pros-- are you kidding me?

Cons

Crashing, crashing, crashing. If it's not crashing, one single Flash ad on a web page is enough to suck up CPU like crazy, draining my laptop battery.

Summary

This fits well into the line of junky updates of all their applications for the past 3 years or so (like Reader, where the update itself fails half of the time -- they still haven't noticed that there are case sensitive HFS+ file systems out there).
Some 3 years ago or so they must have done something really detrimental to their software QA process. Since then they haven't been able to turn out a single good update any more.
I can't speak about the Windows versions, but the Mac OS X versions of Adobe's software just plain suck. The last stable Reader was 8.1.3, Flash has always been a pain in the back, and I don't want to get started on Air. I can see why Apple doesn't want this junk on iOS.
Get it right, Adobe. Replace your software managers and start over with a good team.

"Pffft......"

February 22, 2011  |  By larryr5

 |  Version: Adobe Flash Player 10.2.152.26

Pros

play flash, sometimes

Cons

Still works like crap.

Summary

If I didn't have to have this for some things, I wouldn't have it on my computer. Text boxes show up with nothing in them. This is BS.

"I guess it works OK, how can I tell, it is automatic"

February 13, 2011  |  By lathangt

 |  Version: Adobe Flash Player 10.2.152.26

Pros

It apparently works ok

Cons

I have no complaints, how would I know if it wasn't working?

Summary

Is there a test that can be utilized to ensure this application is working?

Updated on Feb 16, 2011

I have really nothing more to add to my original review, but I notice you are collecting some bad reviews because this application isn't running as well as older releases - needs to be tested thoroughly!

"From bad to worse"

February 11, 2011  |  By dadaborg

 |  Version: Adobe Flash Player 10.2.152.26

Pros

It clearly demonstrates the need for HTML5

Cons

dr.dk/nu/live/?t - stops playing after a few minutes at most.
voddler.com - the content my kid wanted (Lucky Luke (danish) wouldn't load.
speedtest.net won't load.

Summary

All flash-using sites I've visited since installing this update seem to load incredibly slow - if they load at all.
Adobe Flash Player used to play Flash content while using all my system resources, now it just uses all my system resources.

"Problems right after installation"

February 10, 2011  |  By jaykappmeier

 |  Version: Adobe Flash Player 10.2.152.26

Pros

Installation went smoothly

Cons

Firefox crashed after installation and some scripts stopped working. After the first few crashes things seemed to settle down.

Summary

I am not sure that I am better after this installation given the immediate crashes in Firefox but it if fixes security holes then it might be worth it.
