it's for nvidia. it's only for binary blobs. it's only 32 bits. it crashes. is it really a good news?
I mean, it's better than nothing, but we'd like a little much. After all, as Adobe has not to care about Apple anymore, they have time to invest on Linux platform.
If it's only 32 bits, then as far as I'm concerned it is nothing. I chew through too much RAM for a 32-bit system. With the cheap price of RAM, I don't know why 32-bit desktops exists, aside from pathetic companies (Microsoft, Adobe, etc.) who can't keep up with computers and customers. Apache was running x86-64 Linux web servers on processor simulators a decade ago.
I have a Thinkpad T61p with nvidia Quadro graphics, from 2008. The acceleration works very well with both Epiphany and Chromium. However, it seems that not all online video players support it, only Youtube?
It's still a relieve, playing videos in fullscreen on the 1920x1200 display _never_ worked painlessly with flash before, now it does. And yes, also 1080p titles.
I still hate flash for crashing -- and livelocking the browser on every S2 resume.
