Step 1 - Attempt to download latest system-wide Flash Player update for Mac OS from the Chrome browser.
Results: Can't be done. 'Cause Chrome uses a different plug-in and all end users are feeble minded children who must be kept in a box.
Step 2 - Launch Safari and download latest Flash Player update that way instead.
Step 3 - Quit Safari and try and install latest Flash Player update.
Results: Can't be done! Because Chrome is still running! LOLWUT?! But I thought you said Chrome had a different plug-in?
Seriously, why can no two people at Adobe seem to work together. Are you guys really surprised that people are desparately trying to move away from your plug-in? And this comes from someone developing Flash multimedia stuff for a living.
I know what you mean, this is frustrating for me too. I've never asked why this is happening but I'll shoot an email over to the installer folks to see if they can give me the low down.
Seven months later and TWO FULL YEARS after Google Chrome started bundling their own version of Chrome, I get autoprompted to update to the latest Flash 11.2…
Can we please stop the madness now? Can someone go in and delete the stupid [Cc][Hh][Rr][Oo][Mm][Ee] string from the list of forbidden apps? That's gotta be like… 5 minutes of work?
Thanks in advance…
