Adobe Flash Player is a free application that can be used for your computers and mobile devices, as well as for web browsers.
Flash makes it possible for users to have a smoother, more efficient experience with viewing videos, playing audio files, as well as playing games, either online or offline. Adobe has released a new beta update to the Adobe Flash Player 12, the Adobe Flash Player 13.
Although a bit rough on the sides because of its being on the development stage, it is already pretty good and useful. Many people have given good reviews of the application, and it has proven to be another great update by Adobe.
Are you thinking of updating to 13 as well? Here are some features and information that you may want to know about the application before getting started with the installation.

New Full Screen Notification
One of the small but interesting tweaks that Adobe Flash Player 13 includes is the change in the location of the alert for the full screen option. For better and more distraction-free viewing, you can now see the alert at the top of the screen, where it does not obscure or disturb anything that you are viewing.
Greater Stability, Bugs Fixed
If you felt bothered by several video crashes or failures to launch a game while using older versions of Adobe Flash Player, you can expect a smoother and less problematic time with the Flash 13. This latest version has had stability issues resolved for greater comfort in enjoying multimedia content on your computer.
Higher Quality Image Rendering
Another wonderful feature that Adobe Flash Player 13 comes with is a new and improved Stage 3D Anti-aliasing that makes the rendering of image files much easier to do. Multi-Sampling Anti-Aliasing can now be used on desktop platforms of all kinds.
