Flash 9 Linux Beta Is Live II
October 19, 2006 1 Comment
A follow up to this post. I have installed Flash 9.0 d55 (Firefox 184.108.40.206 for those keeping score) and tested it for a little while. I tried both sites that worked fine for me using Flash 7, and some sites that did not work for me using Flash 7 (Vanguard, Digg and a couple others). I am happy to report that every single site I've tried so far has worked flawlessly. The startup is definitely quicker, I haven't had a single flash induced “hang” yet nor has Firefox crashed. All things told, I'd say this beta is more stable than the “stable” Flash 7 plugin for Linux was. I look forward to the final release, but I'm going to leave the beta installed until that comes out. Once again, kudos to the Flash 9 Linux team.
