Benchmarks Common wisdom has it that Flash is a resource hog, and that HTML5 will prevent your processor from having to work really, really hard to show animations of videos. Well, a number of people have conducted benchmarks with the latest browsers and Flash betas, and common wisdom is starting to show serious signs of crackage.

RE[2]: Regarding Apple

Member since:

This one slipped through and they apologized for it.

Bullcrap; when they shipped 10.0 they knew about the bug and claimed that development was too far along to fix it up; many updates over the 18 months since its release and not a single one of them addressed the bug. So please, stop the crap - Adobe knew they were shipping a product with a known crash bug and for 18 months chose to do nothing about it just like they could do something about the appalling CPU hogging of Flash but instead decides to blame everyone else for their incompetency.

Adobe should be thanking their lucky stars for the fact that if it weren't for Microsoft's stupid stance of not providing Silverlight development tools for Mac - Flash would have been strangled and left for dead by most developers years ago.
