Flash 10.2 now on the CR-48!

Flash 10.2 was released a couple of days ago, and I'd like to mention to anyone that's wondering: you can now use it on your CR-48! So far the CR-48's flash performance has been AWFUL. Luckily, with the introduction of linux hardware acceleration, flash 10.2 makes the CR-48 display flash content a lot smoother. How do you enable it?
1. Enter about:plugins in the browser bar
2. Click on "Details."
3. Disable the first entry for the flash plugin, which should be the 10.1 version, which will leave version 10.2 as the main version.
4. Reboot.

10.2 may be the default version soon. Also, I'm on the dev channel, so it may not be available yet for users of the beta channel (default).
Happy chrome-testing! :)

UPDATE: Flash 10.2 is now default.

  2. After HTML 5.0 why use Flash.
    Seriously I think all sites should switch to HTML 5.0.
    I love HTML 5.0 since it is much faster and more feature accessible.

  3. The thing I like about HTML5 is the fact that it keeps Adobe on its toes. Hopefully flash will get better with the threat of html5.
