There should be a delete button that allows me to delete double posts. I do not know why this is happening to me a lot today.

Agreed!  Adobe is steadily losing their grip on the web content because of hubris and incompetence.  Kinda sad, they're so stubborn about going it alone that they are getting lost in the quicksand.  The thing that sucks is this makes Steve "Jim Jones" Jobs  and his koolaid look good.

Argh, I am sick and tired of these endless updates from Adobe Flash. HTML5 is definitely the future. What Adobe should do is just let anti-virus protectors work with Flash. The fact that I have to install an Adobe Flash update every month is annoying. I look forward to the internet's transistion from Adobe Flash to the more universal HTML5 that every updated browser seems to carry these days.

HTML may be the future as may be flying cars but for now and for quite some time to come you still need four wheels and you also still need Flash. I am not thrilled about all the updates either but your antivirus has to also update a few times a day. It takes seconds, no biggie.

There is a big difference we are talking about here. An Anti-Virus update is only seconds. To update Flash, you have to install a new version, not do a quick update. Which is extremely annoying. Things just need to be perfect the first time around. This is where HTML5 comes in. I just don't like the rather slow adaption to it.

Holly holly holly, there you go again. Macs are great everything and anything else is garbage. My P C does a flash update in under 8 seconds, total. You must be using a MAc with a last generation processor and hardware you can not update. Honestly every post you put in here is MS is bad, PC's are bad Macs are devine. You are sooooo transparent.

An antivirus update is a fraction of a second and a flash update is a few seconds, no biggie if you have state of the art hardware. You love HTML 5 because you worship at the alter of Jobs. It is so obvious. Go post on macworld or something.

Oooooooookay... You are seriouslly on something! Never had I once said I am a mac. The last time I even used a Mac was summer of 1999. If anything, you are more Mac than me. HTML 5 is the future. Not because Steve Jobs said so, but because it is a more universal approach that works on ALL platforms... Not just select ones. Do you like having all 0of your resources taken by an ubsecured Adobe Flash. 

Let me reiterate, Flash has security flaws, and HTML5 is universal for all browsers. You can take your Apple accusations and lump it!

I seem to have hit a nerve. What a load of communist B S, There you go again, all of your posts here belittle anything that is not Mac and especially anything Microsoft. They all have the same theme. It is so transparent, Whatever the future is, and I have been in HiTech for almost 48 years, there will be suprises. Everything has security flaws, if man built it man can get around it. As for me being more MAc than you,, I guess you'll never know will you?

As for Flash, as of right now there are just too many sites that you can not see well without flash. If you have to choose one platform for right now, for the next few years at least it has to be Flash.

Listen... I really do think you are stuck in the past. Why are you ------ Adobe. Flash is known for security flaws! Why would you ------ Flash? Are you stuck using Internet Explorer 6 or something. That is the only reason why I would think you would NOT want the more universally acceptable/secured HTML5. None of which seem to make any sense. In case if you are wondering, I am using Chrome right now... Something you and Steve Jobs never made.

I am a proud communist, and you... Well you are just a blind capitalist. Brainwashed by Reagan and Nixon. "Lets ------ one corporation, because anything that is universally good must evil." Money before people. It has been proven time and time again that HTML 5 is not only secured, but it is even faster, as well as lighter on tasks for all internet connected devices like Internet Enabled TVs, Smart Phones, Tablets, Laptops, Netbooks, Notebooks, desktops and servers. Flash Lite for Android does not even work on all websites, so really, what is it that you are ------. Is it because Flash is accepted in Internet Explorer 6 and not HTML 5? If so, I say it is time to update your browser... It only takes seconds!
