Editors' Review

Improved to give the best the Internet has to offer, Adobe Flash Player 11 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.

"The one to have - if you like infections"

July 05, 2013  |  By hikergirl

 |  Version: Adobe Flash Player 11.7.700.224

Pros

None that I have experienced

Cons

The latest version (11.7.700.224) came with the following infections:
DomaIQ.exe (Trojan) and DomaIQ10.exe (Rootkit)(win32.RootKit!IK)

Summary

I have reported this to Adobe's pros. Let's all hope they get this corrected, and soon. Meanwhile, I have reported these infections to Avast, so these can be added to their arsenal. A bit too late for me, as I have not found any way to rid my system of them. The problem begins at boot, with Flash running, and running, and running.... It runs so much that it makes getting on Web sites a lesson in patience.

"Plase Adobe PLEASE not again!!!"

June 16, 2013  |  By HSimpp

 |  Version: Adobe Flash Player 11.7.700.224

Pros

I can watch flash videos, no volume regression... yet.

Cons

Flash makes the browser lose focus. So when I try to mute, lower or raise the volume with my keyboard I can't, I have to go and click somewhere blank in the page to be able to use the keyboard volume control.

Summary

This is so frustrating.

Why do you keep having regressions? This strongly suggests that you are simply recycling old code. At least check it as a minimal gesture of respect to us. :/
