"I'm fed up with Macromedia Flash Player"

June 13, 2006  |  By Nikita

 |  Version: Flash Player (Internet Explorer) 8.0.22

Pros

Nothing.

Cons

Generally I hate installations going without my control. The normal procedure is: I download the setup file, then I run my uninstall scanner, install the software where I need to install it and use it. I have already installed THOUSANDS of apps that way.

With Macromedia Flash Player it's all different. There is nothing to download (I mean there's no setup file), they just offer to install it on the fly.

And though I hate such installations I've decided to make an exception for Macromedia Flash Player and install it.

I have tried many times but nothing happened. I don't know whether there was something in the background but nothing appeared visually and I steel see those "You need the latest version..." Very annoying.

"Almost a must have"

May 27, 2006  |  By sexychristiandiva

 |  Version: Flash Player (Internet Explorer) 8.0.22

Pros

Flash is almost a must have these days. Many website utilize flash. Good thing it is free.

Cons

Nothing to really dislike about the program, but you do begin to notice a ton of flash ads. If you are going to install flash, be sure to get some ad blockers or use a browser that allows u to block flash ads.

"Needed for viewing movies through browser"

May 23, 2006  |  By Lifaen

 |  Version: Flash Player (Internet Explorer) 8.0.22

Pros

Needed for watching most videos through your browser, and works perfectly fine most of the time.

Cons

I'm not a big fan of Internet Explorer, so I have to download a different version for Mozilla Firefox.

"Great if you always like seeing ads most of the time"

May 06, 2006  |  By Paolonicus

 |  Version: Flash Player (Internet Explorer) 8.0.22

Pros

Can't be without if you're a regular internet user. Works great with Yahoo Messenger.

Cons

If you're one of those that frequently visits friendly web networking( friendster, myspace, hipstir), it will create problems with those pages like messing up your account settings and view options. I've been using Friendster since it became available of early 2004. It works fine until you install Macromedia Flash Player on your pc. Flash player is ok with other websites but not for those that I'ved mentioned. Try and see for yourself.

"Good Product"

April 19, 2006  |  By Mike98

 |  Version: Flash Player (Internet Explorer) 8.0.22

Pros

Easy to install and uninstall, now also in the control panel. I downloaded and installed version 8.0.24.0 from the macromedia website (owned by adobe). Ideal for animations on the web. Most Windows versions have already the Flash Player installed, but these are old versions of the Flash player. So download the newest!

"Only for fast computers."

January 22, 2006  |  By oldcomp

 |  Version: Flash Player (Internet Explorer) 8.0.22

Pros

I don't know. I haven't been able to download it.

Cons

You need to have a 450MHz or more computer to be able to download this. If you don't, then you get very annoying and VERY slow pop-ups on every fifth page asking if you want to download this player (the rest of the page doesn't load in the meantime).The only way to stop the pop-ups is to turn off flash altogether, even the flash that you can see with your old player. Macromedia blames Microsoft.

Does anyone know of a better flash player?
