What’s New in Flash Player 10.2?
Flash Player 10.2 introduces Stage Video, a full hardware-accelerated video pipeline for best-in-class, beautiful video across platforms and browsers – making Flash video dramatically more efficient (a 10X reduction in CPU usage in some demos). This advance in performance builds on the benefits of H.264 hardware accelerated decoding and optimized power consumption introduced in 10.1, and works with all of the existing video on the web viewed in Flash Player – so will save significant battery life on portable computers and mobile devices.
Additionally, this release of Flash Player offers all new features like multiple monitor full-screen support (enabling you to watch videos in true full screen on one display while multi-tasking on another), custom native mouse cursors (another popular request from designers and developers), and Internet Explorer 9 (IE9) hardware accelerated rendering support.
And other existing capabilities have been enhanced – like better sub-pixel rendering for superior text readability, fast switch between bitrates to automatically adjust to changing network conditions, and improved localized input method editor (IME) support.
