Adobe Flash has come a long way. Today, the company has launched the 64-bit edition of its Flash player named ‘Square’. And with the public release of Microsoft’s IE 9 Beta, the timing for ‘Sqaure’ couldn’t have been better. As per Adobe, the player takes full advantage of IE 9 when running on Windows 7 64-bit edition, and runs graphics at least 35% faster when compared to older versions of Internet Explorer (32-bit editions).
Overall, it seems the IE 9 + ‘Square’ combo will take internet media experience to a whole new level. Adobe reports, “as part of our collaboration with Microsoft’s Internet Explorer team over the past few months, Flash Player “Square” has been enhanced to directly support the hardware-accelerated graphics capabilities in the newest version of IE. Flash Player “Square” leverages the new GPU support available with Internet Explorer 9 Beta to deliver a faster and more responsive user experience. In our internal testing, we’ve seen significant improvements in Flash Player graphics performance – exceeding 35% in Internet Explorer 9 Beta compared to Flash Player running in previous versions of IE.”
