    Angry Flash browser plugin on MAC
    Hi

    Is anyone here not satisfied with viewing flash sites on mac?
    i have problems especially with flash sites which have high F/P seconds
    we develop flash sites with quite a high fps on pc and never had problems before

    On my mac at home flash sites are sluggish and slow, i've tried most browsers safari, firefox, opera, ie. All have the same problem

    I suspect the plugin was never properly optimized to get the full benefit of Mac processors

    do you experience the same problems?

    I have never had any problems with flash sites on my Macs. I use Safari almost exclusively and I have no complaints.

    All the Macs I use daily are listed by my avatar. The main machine I use is my eMac. All of my Macs are running OS 10.3.9 with the exception of one PowerBook still running 10.2.8.

    the problem happens when a flash site has a fps of say 20+
    with sites that use standard 12fps sites look good and don't stall
    the thing is that lately everyone is developing sites with high fps

    I have something to ask you. Do you use Firefox? Firefox does not handle flash content all that well. I can barely view flash content with my iBook using Firefox, but Safari handles flash content great on my iBook. But on my iMac G5, flash content runs really smooth in Firefox.

    I use firefox almost exclusively. I also noticed that if for example you have a browser window with a flash site in it and you minimize it in the dock, the whole system slows down. using apps like photoshop becomes unbearable. ever noticed that? or maybe it happens only with firefox, haven tried it wit other browsers
