Latest Adobe Flash Player 13 Download for Windows and Mac OS X


Have you heard of a Greek word that is written like Triskaidekaphobia? Well, if you haven’t, there you have it.

Let’s hope it won’t have any effect on you and it also does not describe you in one way or the other.

The fear of the number 13 is known as Triskaidekaphobia and if you do believe that the number 13 is an unlucky number, well, something is about to change in your life with the latest release of Adobe Flash Player 13. If you are one of those Triskaidekaphobic readers out there, you don’t have to worry about anything as this number comes with “blessings” when it comes to Adobe Flash Players. This version brings along some of the best features of Adobe.

Adobe is a Leader in Software Technologies

Primarily, Adobe has been a leader when it comes to providing technological solutions and software developments in a wide range of aspects. Despite having played such a great role in shaping the way we use the internet, Adobe hasn’t stopped at doing the same and this is evident with the Adobe Flash Player 13 latest updates. Flash plays a massive role in our day-to-day usage of internet.

In essence, the whole of the internet would be totally different or rather pointless if it were not for the efforts of Flash Player. Furthermore, this multimedia software application has enabled YouTube to stand for the period it has stood. This 13th version of Adobe Flash Player comes with a number of improved features and they include:

Better Character Support for Supplementary TextField

The newest version of Adobe Flash Player 13 has improved character support for supplementary TextField. In this new version, characters from BMP (Basic Multilingual Plane) carrying Unicode points ranging between U+10,000 and U+10FFFF now have a better performance in the TextField controls. Furthermore, this new version offers support for emoticons.

New Stage 3D Profile

With the latest version, developers have the power to customize wrapping modes to repeat or clamp. The repeat mode repeats the texture located on the U-axis and the V-axis. It is now possible for users to repeat on a single axis thanks to the two parameters included in the new version namely CLAMP_U_REPEAT_V and REPEAT_U_CLAMP_V.

Full-Screen Video Warning has been relocated

When viewing videos in full screen, the warning “Press Esc to exit full-screen mode” would usually appear at the center of the screen in previous versions of Flash Player. In the latest release of Adobe Flash Player 13, this window that used to pop up and block the view of viewers has been relocated and now it appears at the top of the window. This ensures that the security and comfort of users are not compromised in any way.

These new features associated with Adobe Flash Player 13 makes it look even better than ever before and if you haven’t upgraded to the latest version just yet, this might just be the right moment for you to do so.
