Flash Player 7


Macromedia has released flash player 7 on 5/26/04. There are some MAJOR improvements. It is much faster and is equal to the windows version. I REALLY recommend you go upgrade if you haven't already.

p.s. i wasn't sure where to put this.

To uninstall the plugin all you should have to do is go into the directory where is installed and delete the two files. Mine are in /lib/mozilla-1.6/plugins (I think). However, I'm not sure if you would have to uninstall the original one anyway in order to version 7 work properly.

Wow, you're right!
It's quite a lot smoother than Flash Player 6.
