getting tired of these constant flash updates

I'm with you on that. I just finished updating like 2 days ago, now i gotta update again.

No one is forcing you to, if you'd really rather have an outdated version. It's not like updating is a lot of work though, you make it sound like a time consuming chore.

Wow... I haven't read the changelog, but one thing I noticed: The YouTube videos became extremely responsive... I mean, try fullscreen/normal... Instant process. Also, Microsoft just released the updates and includes new Flash version... It might be 11.6 for IE10.

Indeed, it's 11.6 for IE10. Not that I care, I've disabled IE altogether; just mentioning.

Thanks for saying something about that. I just tried it and it does seem faster. Normally you are looking at a black screen for a second or so.

I agree, Youtube is much better now. Switching to full screen used to hang for a few seconds for me, now it switches very smoothly and fast.
