Adobe recently has released a trial version of Flash Player plug-in that will enable Flash to be in par with new technologies emerging in the web domain. In past year web browsers have released 64-bit designs. With the initial release of the 64 bit version, Adobe seeks to provide greater support to Internet Explorer 9 beta.
The new Flash version is called “Square” which is available for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux. Users can download the beta release from Adobe labs, however one will have to manually update the software.
The release of the beta version comes in lieu of the current trends in the web browsing experience. With the increase in multimedia applications and web technologies like HTML 5, it becomes imperative for Adobe to adapt flash to new web browsing technologies.
As the IT industry is transitioning towards 64-bit computing, various technologies from processors to multimedia applications are taking advantage of the transition. The major advantage for these entities is that 64 bit computing significantly enhances the speed of searching and processing data on a computer. When it comes to applications and web browsers, they can take advantage of the 64 bit computing experience, by providing renewed acceleration in streaming videos and interacting with multimedia applications.
Flash Player “Square” leverages the new GPU support available with Internet Explorer 9 Beta to deliver a faster and more responsive user experience with Flash-based content. As a result users can expect greater web browsing speeds, to handle multimedia components in a web page.
