Adobe Flash Player Review: Old, Not Obsolete

Adobe Flash Player is necessary for running animated or interactive Flash elements of web pages. Though it’s not as popular as in the 2000s, you still can download Adobe Flash Player and have it as a plugin in your browser, to surely open all Flash elements you may encounter.

Design 10/10

In fact, you see the design of Adobe Flash Player only during the installation. All the time you actually use it it’s not seen as a standalone app, but integrated into your web browser, allowing for it to play Flash animations. And it’s never seen by itself, though it enables you to see the interactive elements of the page.

Functionality 6/10

Ten years ago most rates in Adobe Flash Player review would have been 10/10, but times are changing. As HTML5 and other newer techs take over, Flash becomes a legacy technology. But there are still many sites using it, especially those with online browser games, so Flash is still demanded.

With Flash, you can just play videos or launch interactive apps and games within your browser. The exact features and controls available (start/stop, interactive controls and so on) depend on the properties of a Flash object. They can include mouse and keyboard control, webcam and microphone access (for online communication), and so on. Flash apps are still popular as, say, means of video and audio communication through web pages.

Usability 7/10

As you still keep Flash in your browser, you don’t have to do anything but update it when necessary. The plugin notifies you when an update is rolled out, so you only have to agree and download new version. The rest is done automatically. If the page you’re viewing contains interactive Flash elements, they are loaded and integrated seamlessly into the page (though it depends on how it’s made)

As Flash is just a technology enabling videos and apps to run, the usability of a particular element (a game, a video caller, or an animated video) depends on how it’s made too.

Cross-Platform Use 7/10

Though mobile developers explicitly neglect Flash since Adobe discontinued its support for Android and never officially started it for iOS, the technology is still used in desktop versions of web sites. Many of them keep great collections of Flash-based legacy games or animated videos. So it’s available for all desktop platforms (Windows, OS X, Linux), and – as a plugin – for most popular web browsers.

In Conclusion

Though the times are changing, you still can download Adobe Flash Player and use it with your browser. The developers even roll out frequent updates for you to apply. Until all the developers completely give it up, you better have Flash Player in your browser, too.

Pros:

  • Required to open Flash-based web pages and apps;
  • Provides lots of interactive features;
  • Works automatically once you’ve installed it;
  • Supports all video formats ever used in web development;
  • Video and sound quality updated constantly.

Cons:

  • The technology is obsolete and making its way out of the Internet;
  • The plugin needs to be updated manually.
