Any other flash players?

by ssh49tn / July 16, 2012 12:31 PM PDT

I am checking to see if there are any other flash players, besides the one Adobe makes. I like to play games on Zynga & Facebook, & for at least the last year have had problems with the Adobe flash player. Chrome has their own flash player, again from Adobe, & Firefox you have to install the Adobe flash player. Yet, whichever browser I use, the flash player crashes regularly, & NOBODY can offer a workable solution. I've tried every suggestion I can get from Zynga, from Chrome, AND from Adobe, & none of them has fixed the problem. I know there are a LOT of other people who have this same problem. So,I was wondering if I could find a different flash player, if it might work better than the Adobe one.

I did try that, but it won't load, & then the flash player crashes. I did uninstall the 11.3 player, & installed version 10, & although it's slower, it doesn't crash as bad. I'll google that though, & see if it helps me. Thanks!

There are

There are a couple, but as bad as Adobe's Flash is, the alternatives are worse. They are trying to recreate Flash without having access to how Flash actually works internally.
