HTML5 is the future.

I would like to know how many that would select the "I block this" button if there was one..

This is the only program that manages to consistently bring every Mac I've ever owned (including my MacBook Pro) to its knees. Do yourself a favour and promote an open web by uninstalling it:

HOWTO: Fix OS X by uninstalling Adobe Flash


I hate Flash. How can such a huge company like adobe make a so poorly optimized software? Why do you think Steve Jobs don't want flash in iPhones? Because flash consumes LOTS of cpu, killing battery's life. The same occurs with laptops.

@ bitnix:
Just one more thing...
I'm using a different system: Intel-based iMac (Dual Core, 2 GHz), running Mac OS X Leopard (10.5.4).

@ bitnix:
The problem you mention probably has got to do with Flash Player 10.
And there are more problems... The media player in the music section of Download.com does not work with Safari and Opera if you have Flash Player 10 installed. But it dows work with Firefox and Camino.
I have uninstalled version 10 of Flash Player, went back to version 9 and everything is working properly again.

This may be me only, but since I installed Flash Player 10.0d536, I'm getting stuttering audio in most flash media players out there.

This may not be due to the Flash Player, though, but could also be due to the fact that I just upgraded to Safari 3.1.2 (4525.22). Or maybe it's because of these two upgrades, in combination? Note: it doesn't stutter in Firefox 3.

For reference, I'm using G5 dual 2.5 Ghz, 1.5 GB RAM, OS X 10.4.11.

I'm curious if anyone else experiences stuttering audio in flash videos recently.

The Flash 10 beta player is available from Adobe Labs
