Flash Player 8 public beta for Mac

Macromedia’s Flash Player 8 has entered public beta testing. For Mac OS X folks, the most significant change is that, well, it finally doesn’t suck. Or, to put it in another way, it doesn’t feel like you’re running it on a 16Mhz 68000. Finally, enjoy the delights of Strong Bad and godskitchendigital without Flash grinding 100% of your CPU!

With joy, I can scratch “write Safari plugin from open-source Flash implementation” off my TODO list …

Update: Flash Player 8 is now out of the beta-testing phase. You can download the full version from Macromedia’s Flash download page.
