Editors' review

Adobe's latest version of the Flash Player browser plug-in is just as trouble-free as previous versions, existing unobtrusively in your system until Web-based animations, games, or ubiquitous Flash ads require its services.

The latest version downloads and installs quickly, and will probably always require a browser restart. Our tests turned up nothing to make us scratch our heads, and upgrading from version 9 to the current one has fixed for many people a bug that caused embedded video to freeze.

You need a Flash Player to experience the Web at its fullest, so users at any level of expertise should have no qualms about installing or upgrading to Flash 10.

    "Controls not reliable, can't identify video sources"

    July 23, 2014   |   By Bill_Levinson

    Version: Adobe Flash Player 14.0.0.145

    Pros

    Plays interactive content; probably indispensable

    Cons

    Does not always respond to user commands.

    Right-clicking does not identify the source of unwanted content, which means unwanted content cannot be banned with parental or similar controls. Business IT departments may similarly be unable to ban unwanted video sources.

    Summary

    The problems show a relatively low level of pride in Adobe's workmanship. Even though this product is free, it does reflect on the company.
