Adobe Flash gets automatic updates – as it’s dying.

zsgncszf_thumb Adobe Flash gets automatic updates - as it's dying.One of the things that I hated about Adobe, and Adobe Flash was that it was one of those applications that was absolutely required to constantly be updated; consequently unless you wanted to miss out on a lot of content over the Internet you had to have Adobe Flash installed on your local PC, to be compatible with your default web browser.

But now that Adobe seems to get their head out of their butt and realized that there update process for Adobe Flash was completely stupid; Adobe has added the option for automatic updates could be applied when they’re available.

Previously, every time Adobe had an update to Adobe Flash you had to reinstall the installation package each time and you had to agree to the Terms of Service each time.

Back in March of 2012, Adobe start rolling this option out to everyone with the release of v11…

It’s just entertaining that Adobe, so lethargic with their updates, finally added some common sense to the update process, just as Adobe Flash is losing its appeal to the masses, to ultimately be replaced with HTML5 [the common web standard].

So, as you see these updates from Adobe, perhaps/maybe one of the last times you see the update from Adobe, go ahead and notice the auto-update option and ensure to select the ‘install updates automatically when available’; it may keep your blood pressure just a little bit lower.

I hope this helps…


Thank you,
