Adobe Flash Player works with most operating systems and functions as a plugin that allows your computer to support apps that require Flash.

With Adobe Flash Player, you can now play Flash games on any computer. Whether you're a fan of first-person shooting games, racing games or even farming games, you'll find that many of those games require that you have a current version of Flash on your computer. If you do not have Flash, games and apps will crash and pop up a window that tells you that you must download Flash.

Many of the top sites that provide videos also require Flash. This newer version of Flash now supports different video codes to improve your overall experience. You'll notice that the picture appears clearer and that the audio seems stronger too. It works on sites like YouTube and video similar sharing sites. Users will also like that it now works with Action Script 3.0, which delivers better graphics.

Though it works on most devices and with leading browsers and operating systems, it does not carry over between browsers. If you use both Chrome and Firefox, you'll need to download the plugin for both browsers. The plugin also comes with an updated version of Google Chrome that automatically downloads to your computer.

Adobe Flash Player experiences some issues with both Firefox and Chrome. It may issue a message that states it had problems before or after crashing. This occurs more frequently among those who use Flash with other apps running in the background and those who have multiple windows or tabs open at the same time. This may require that you shut down your browser or restart your computer. When working properly, the error message will occur immediately after the app crashes and will let you automatically refresh the page to save your progress.

Having this plugin on your computer can improve your overall web surfing experience too. Instead of coming across sites and seeing black or gray boxes with messages that you need Flash to view that content, you'll see clear images and videos on your screen. Adobe Flash Player makes it easy to watch videos, view animated GIF files and view other types of content on all your favorite websites. Download the plugin to experience the internet like never before.

Pros:

  • Downloads and installs in seconds
  • Improves graphics on most video sharing sites
  • Automatically updates its security settings for extra safety
  • Works with popular operating systems, including Linux and Windows 8
  • Now supports apps and sites that use 3D graphics

Cons:

  • Requires that users download separate versions for each browser they use
  • Can crash when using the plugin with other apps or open tabs/windows
  • Users experience some issues with freezing and the stability of the plugin
