Adobe Flash Player 8.5b1

Adobe Flash Player logo

If you have a Macintosh, don’t install Adobe Flash Player beta (formerly Macromedia Flash).

It will crash Safari (and other applications that use the entire WebKit like DEVONthink) after my Powerbook (Mac OS X 10.4.6) wakes from sleep.

Besides this version isn’t Universal so it will slow down your Intel-based Mac.

Idiots.

  1. Click on the “Adobe Flash Player beta” link above and then click on the download link. It will direct you to the latest Flash player for your operating system.

  2. Wtf?! Adobe flash 9 doesn’t work with intel?! Anyone know how to get around this? It was working fine before I left the country and when I came back it doesn’t work whatsoever.
