Internet & Networking Adobe has gone on the offensive - big time. The company has started a rather massive advertisement campaign on the web as well as in print in various large US newspapers, in answer to Apple's battle with Flash and Adobe. In the meantime, Adobe received support from an unexpected corner - Andy Gryc, product marketing manager at QNX, has written a lengthy blog post supporting Adobe.

Flash's bad OSX performance not only affects video playback, but also Flash's normal graphics operations (for which Adobe could use OpenGL but chose not to).

According to a developer who does the rendering stuff for Flash Player at Adobe, OpenGL was and is not an option: "No browser I know of supports this properly today."

He has the benefit of the doubt from my side.

WTF? Quake Live, Unity 3D, etc. access fully hardware accelerated OpenGL under Mac OS X and Linux just fine.

Yes, they do. Are they browsers?
