Universal Flash Player 9

Adobe today released a final version of Adobe Flash Player 9, its next generation of the high-performance, lightweight client for Apple's Intel-based Macs. The company claims Flash Player 9 achieves up to 10 times faster performance, displaying content created with Adobe's Macromedia Flash authoring tool including high-impact Website user interfaces, Flash videos and animations, and rich internet applications created using Adobe Flex 2. Flash is installed on over 600 million internet-connected personal computers and mobile devices worldwide, according to the company. Flash Player 9 features ActionScript 3.0, an object-oriented ECMAScript-compliant programming language, as well as a new ActionScript Virtual Machine (AVM) featuring a Just In Time (JIT) compiler that translates ActionScript bytecode to native machine code for maximum execution speed. Until today, the company has offered a beta version for Intel-based Macs. Adobe Flash Player 9 for Apple's Intel-based Macs is available immediately as a free download.

    Only problem is that this flash player only works for the Netscape browser. No safari or Firefox support so what the h*** good is this.

    Youtube Problems?

    I installed this, and ever since Youtube videos will only play in 2 second chunks. Anyone else having this problem or is it unrelated to 9?
