Flash might not be a platform that is supported on the iPad by Apple, and they have their own reasons, not to mention the head of HTML5 nibbling on Adobe’s tail to boot. Having said that, plenty of websites still support Flash, and there are still millions of computers out there in the market that run Flash as well. Adobe has just introduced Adobe Flash 11.3, which is the latest update to the software, right fresh out of beta status, and in doing so they have thrown in a fair amount of goodies for you to make that update if you haven’t done so already (or automatically).
You will be pleased (and also relieved) to hear that seven critical security holes have already been plugged, while Adobe has also thrown in a background updating feature for the Mac OS X platform. Sandboxing which is evident in Google’s Chrome has also been thrown into the mix on Firefox, as part of their efforts to slow down the march of any hacker through the isolation of the plugin from critical system processes.
