    "Fantastic Example of Bloatware"

    April 20, 2013  |   By heldmyw

    Version: Shockwave Flash Plug-in (32-bit) 11.7.700.169

    Pros

    There are none. This is the dead-end of Adobe Flash Player, and they don't care whose day they ruin.

    Congrats, Adobe! You now rank below Comcast, and only slightly above dogfights!

    Cons

    Bloated, balky, and ridiculous, the new "standalone" iteration of Flash Player launches itself and takes up ENORMOUS numbers of CPU cycles, and will not shut itself off when not needed.

    I suspect malware, and/or spyware comes with this pig.

    Summary

    I would gladly pay for a non-Adobe flash player. Until I can find a workaround, I'll be skipping flash movies.

    "It don't work and kills other media programs."

    April 17, 2013  |   By Ahoydave

    Version: Shockwave Flash Plug-in (32-bit) 11.7.700.169

    Pros

    There are no pros I could find.

    Cons

    Latest "upgrade" has no audio and kills every other application that uses audio.

    Summary

    Rating systems only account for how well an application works. They don't take into account what damage they do. I wish there were negative stars maybe call them black holes to stay away from.

    "Blows. Just...blows."

    April 7, 2013  |   By Liptonius

    Version: Shockwave Flash Plug-in (32-bit) 11.6.602.180

    Pros

    None. Really.

    It's crap.

    Cons

    Massive, bloated and worthless, the strong-arm Adobe mafia once again shoves crap on the public.

    Threatening legacy providers, they have tried to sew up their disastrous legacy with this piece of junk. You cannot go back to flash 10 unless you saved a download of it from years ago.

    Pure junk, and yet another reason to despise this high-handed pack of imbeciles.

    Summary

    Hoping that greed and meanness brings about the end of this wretched company.

    April 3, 2013  |   By Zimalia

    Version: Shockwave Flash Plug-in (32-bit) 11.6.602.180

    Pros

    Since I can't get it to install, none.

    Cons

    It won't install! I have downloaded it repeatedly, and it just won't install.

    Summary

    Come on Adobe, Fix it!

    "Version 11 is terrible."

    March 23, 2013  |   By tembuktoo

    Version: Shockwave Flash Plug-in (32-bit) 11.6.602.180

    Pros

    None to report yet.

    Cons

    Constantly getting error messages in IE and Fire3fox.
    Videos skip and repeat over and over.
    I get message that a "crash message" has been sent by nothing is ever done about them.

    Summary

    I'm going back to an earlier version and will not update again unless I'm forced to.

    "It does nothing but crash!"

    March 16, 2013  |   By Jumper209

    Version: Shockwave Flash Plug-in (32-bit) 11.6.602.180

    Pros

    When it is working -- it is great. I can watch video on You Tube and Yahoo easy.

    Cons

    I must uninstall and install 11.6 every morning and afternoon. It simply does nothing but crash. I know when I have to uninstall and reinstall it because I see a Grey Screen with a frowny face lego advising it has crashed. I try to reload -- no good. Gotta uninstall and reinstall if I intend to see a video. I now have a copy of the 10.3 version I can install. It never crashes. Adobe has seeded a stupid alert that makes it stop working -- but I simply reactivate it, and viola we are in business again.

    Summary

    I hate Adobe 11.6 as it is just a crash prone piece of software. Adobe and Firefox need to get together and work out their differences and get this fixed.

    "I HATE Adobe Flash 11 but LOVE Adobe Flash 10"

    March 14, 2013  |   By wooooof

    Version: Shockwave Flash Plug-in (32-bit) 11.6.602.180

    Pros

    There are no pros with Flash 11 because I get a gray screen with an exclamation point in the middle of the screen after using an online editing program when it's been active for a long time. That never happens with the Number 10 flash player plugin.

    Cons

    See "Pros" (none)

    Summary

    Unfortunately, Avast has decided to get into the updating software business, and updated my Adobe Flash without my consent. Now I can't find a download to get back my Adobe Flash 10. I tried system restore but that didn't work either....even though the restore point I used should have given me back my "10." I'm more than annoyed.
