Adobe has finally delivered its new Flash Player for PCs, and we’re looking forward to seeing what’s in store for users.
This update marks the first time we’ve seen Adobe push Flash to the desktop since Flash Player 9.5 was released in April, and the new update is still very much in beta.
While Flash Player is expected to make its debut on Windows, Mac, and Linux, Adobe’s focus is on Mac and Linux-based browsers.
The company has promised that the update will introduce an “advanced, robust” interface for developers to create, debug, and update their code, and it’s also expected to offer “significant performance improvements.”
As far as Flash Player 8.0 is concerned, the company says that the new version will provide “more secure, optimized, and better-performing performance than previous versions.”
With Adobe’s Flash Player, you can expect better support for your site’s Flash content, improved performance, and an easier way to set your site up for security, including using an HTTPS/SSL certificate.
With this update, Adobe also promises improved performance for users and improved security for the websites that use Flash.
“We’ve always focused on making Flash performance as fast as possible,” Adobe Flash product manager Scott Ollivander said in a statement.
“This update delivers a significant performance boost, including increased security for users, better performance for the Web site, and a much improved experience for site developers.”
While we’re excited to see Adobe continue to roll out updates to Flash Player as quickly as possible, it’s important to note that this is only the first update for the popular Flash Player operating system.
We’ll be updating this article with additional details as we learn more about the upcoming Flash Player updates.
