To view multimedia files, execute rich Internet applications and play games embedded into websites, you will need Adobe Flash Player, a free software which “reads” content created on the Adobe Flash platform. The first version was released 19 years ago and Adobe Systems kept improving it, launching new versions every now and then. The latest beta version is 18.0.0.144 and it has accelerated graphics rendering, high-resolution bitmap support, asynchronous bitmap decoding and many other features. Also, the new beta version has an improved performance and greater privacy control. But it may come with bugs and other glitches and in that case, you might want to install the stable version.

Adobe Flash Player provides cross-platform runtime environment for desktop and mobile applications, being used internally by the Adobe Integrated Runtime (Adobe AIR) – which supports instable apps on Linux, Windows, OS X, iOS and Android. The developers must build flash applications for the Adobe AIR runtime, otherwise the additional features can’t be utilized – file system integration, native window/screen integration, native client extensions etc.

Flash Player is installed on over 90 percent of the computers connected to the internet, and the users downloaded the latest versions to enjoy playing games embedded into web pages, to view animations and graphical user interfaces. It seems that there are 1 billion connected desktops and 400 million of their owners are usually upgrading to a new version, within one month and a half after it’s being released.
