Internet & Networking Not too long ago Adobe started a "We love Apple" campaign, as a response to Apple's continuous negative remarks about the company. With Flash 10.1 slowly but surely appearing on more and more mobile devices, it seems like the company just doesn't care about it any more. Adobe's CEO Shantanu Narayen has said they've "moved on".

So good they're over Apple. When will you stop crashing my web experience on OS X? I'm a customer, and I'm calling for it.

Thank goodness I won't get that experience on iOS.

you have a choice on OS X, if it crashes your web experience and you dont like it, remove the plug-in and you will have a crash-less experience on your OS X, same as on iOS. Some are, however do not experience the crashing experience you are having on OS X and would like to have flash support in their iOS.

Dont want to be able to choose for yourself if you want flash or not on iOS? why do you still have it on OS X if it "crashes your web experience"? why dont you simply remove it and be done with it? or you cant devide for yourself and you think you will be better off if apple also disabled flash on OS X?

This is 2010, a browser crashing on a buggy plugin is a browser's fault, no excuses.

What's wrong with people?! If you don't like it, uninstall it. It will make your system woek just like iOS, which you obviously think is so great.

The stupid, it burns!

if the goal of Flash is to delivered exceptional user experience on multiple platforms, as it should be, then they must find a way to improve it on the MAC. As the owner of flash on 3 MAC systems and 2 windows system, I find its high level of resource consumption to be unacceptable. This is especially true on the MAC.

It causes my otherwise high performance MAC machines to drag and frankly i don't like. And the solution isn't to tell me to uninstall it. If they want to be a universal platform will the associated bragging rights then they need to fix it.

I don't care if it's an Adobe only solution or a joint Adobe/Apple solution. But until it performs better i will continue to criticize it.

Standard Apple reply would be ... Mac OS X is faulty (taken from standard reply repository when asked when will Apple fix iTunes on Windows)

Don't sweat the small stuff. WebKit2 is coming along and will be ready very soon to keep all 3rd party plugins from ever holding the browser hostage or worse crashing it.

And yes, it leap frogs Google's solution.

Safari already has OOP already but the problem is that it isn't available on 32bit platforms and even when it is enabled it isn't the silver bullet given that it can still pull down the browser. These are just bandaid solutions which fail to address the elephant in the room.

It's easy really just UN-Install Flash from you Apple Computer? You do know how to remove things from your computer do you? If not maybe you can ask Apple if they would be so obliged to remove it for you. They may even do it for a fee.
