Adobe Flash PlayerThe Adobe Flash Player, of late has been going through a lot of issues with a flailing reputation.
Fingers are being pointed at its performance and people who have used this application for years are now questioning the level of security it comes with.
They say that HTML5 will bring about the demise of the application and websites have already started moving out of the Adobe scope of services.
Probably the biggest hit on the credibility of Adobe was made when YouTube left the application for good.
However, some more patient websites have held on – not because they believe that Adobe Flash Player will improve services, but because they feel that HTML 5 is still too slow and under developed for their content to be featured perfectly.
They too, in course of time will move out from the Adobe service and will join the others in using HTML 5.
In short, it is a well planned execution of an age old app and we are seeing it happening right in front of our eyes, little by little each day.
As Adobe Flash Player nears its so called imminent demise, it still is hoping to secure its failing goodwill.
The updates are coming about as usual and developers are working with the same diligence as they had been doing earlier, fixing up loopholes and patches that the previous versions have left.
Although it is too late now to save their future, there still might be a little hope for them; all is not lost until the last service is dismissed and till then the Flash Player will cling on to hope.
Along these lines, the latest version that we have seen on the net is the Adobe Flash Player 20, which is still in the beta version.
The Version 17 brought serious issues with the flash plugin and versions before that somehow caused threat to users by exposing their security information over the internet but now, users are interested in getting something better.
The code name for this update is ‘Rankin’ and it is expected to deliver better performance in terms of content display.
With the help of Flash Player and AIR, the content that we want to view will be displayed perfectly and will transit properly between your browser and the standalone apps that you are using, thus causing the content to have more than perfect output.
Games can be played both in 2D and 3D quality without any snags and security features have been improved.
The stable versions of this app are still not available, but you can try the beta version by searching for it on Google.
