Lightspark For Open Flash Inches Forward
Phoronix: Lightspark For Open Flash Inches Forward
While Adobe has abandoned Linux Flash Player support, the open-source Lightspark Flash Player alternative continues to inch forward...
From Ubuntu 12.04 I upgraded to 64 bit version. Mostly it was smooth but then I stuck by flash. First Chrome 64bit don't have built in flash plugin, that means Google's flash for Linux is not anything if you are using 64 bit. After I installed adobe flash from repository, I am suffering random memory leaks and HANG on chrome for pages with Flash. It was smooth before with Chrome 32 bit on ubuntu 11.10 32 bit. If Gnash or Lightspark support Youtube and Angry Birds for Facebook smoothly, then I would remove the crapy Adobe Flash.
(stupid character limit)
I jumped ship to Chrome awhile back so this doesn't worry me at all since chrome will continue to have flash updates. Thank you Google!
Bench mark LightSpark and Adobe Flash
It would be a good time to benchmark both of them. As the Ubuntu is in new cycle, it is neccessary to see LightSpark getting improved along in the cycle.
Does PTS have Flash benchmarks? Benchmarks are only worthwhile if Lightspark is reasonably stable, and from reports I've seen, it doesn't seem to be. (I personally haven't tried it in a while.)

Flash is dead. I don't care about Scene3D, gaming or any fancy new stuff.
I just want it to play YouTube and porno.
I'm considering switching to it now. I'll probably do so once I install the about-to-hit beefy miracle in the next week or so.

I hope every update is posted on Phoronix, so that the profile remains high.
Adobe's Flash on linux is dead, they won't be updating it anymore. If you want somewhere to go when the official plugin has reached a state of deep-defunct, don't let lightspark, or gnash, or any others just die on the vine.
If it is not 100% porno compatible then it fucking sucks!
Soon as it is porno-compatible, I'm switching!
