Flash Player Penetration Study
Interesting note from Adobe today:
The study reveals Flash Player 10.1 (just this version) has reached 85% penetration…breaking previous records of market penetration by other versions. There have also been over 3 million downloads of Flash Player 10.1 from the Android market.
The main take-away from this is that more people are upgrading to the next version of Flash Player faster than ever before, which is good news when Flash 10.2 comes out which includes GPU-hardware acceleration (currently Flash uses all CPU), multiple-monitor support and 3D API’s.
Now imagine playing a fully 3D first-person shooter from an average website (no download necessary) with no CPU-utilization
