I spend a lot of time on the internet. If i turned system monitor on and put in a corner of the screen, i can see it loaded an average of 75% percent. The only reason this happened i because of Flash player. Flash player runs our computers most of the time.

I have a dual core 64 bit that was made in 2005. Flash has only a release candidate. Think about.

What's your point? And what do your comments have to do with Fedora?

Just curious.

Well, you have a couple of options.

1: just live with flash player using a lot of CPU.

2: Don't use flash player and look at the big "flash plugin needed" image on each page that has flash embedded

3: Complain to Adobe and see what response you get from them about it since they are the ones that write and maintain flash player and it's not open source.

Besides..
You could run flash 32 bit, it will work on 64 bit machines.
However, you cannot run 64bit flash on 32 bit machines... think about it.

Flash uses 75% of your resources? Maybe it's time for an upgrade....

Maybe i should put it this way: When you browse the web, Flash uses 10 times more resources than the browser itself.

And you are right, it's time for an upgrade. It was long time ago. Here it is: :) http://www.zdnet.co.uk/news/application-development/2011/09/21/flash-11-and-air-3-get-a-release-date-40093988/

Have you tried to open simultaneously ten tabs with news? No matter what resources you have...

Are you using the 64 bit flash plugin, or the 32 bit?

try installing the 64bit plugin by grabbing it from leigh123linux's repo. Simple to install with yum...

Hello
install the "noscript" firefox addon, it will not allow any of those pointless flash ads or any flash for that matter and if you do want to watch a video you just click on it.
If you don't like noscript you could try "flash killer" let the page load, click the flash killer icon and watch the flash crap disappear :cool:
