Today I’ve had yet another reminder of why I have no interest in seeing Flash on my iPad, or iPhone, or any mobile device really. I use a MacBook Pro as my primary computer. An MBP with 4GB of RAM, dual processors, around 50% of free disk space, and an all-round strong spec.
This morning it spent a while slowing to a crawl and becoming just barely responsive. I spent a few minutes looking into what was up with it. The answer was no surprise at all – a Flash player plugin in my browser had crashed and had very kindly shagged overall system performance along the way. And this is how it goes just about every single time my Mac has any performance problems. I honestly cannot even remember the last time anything other than Flash caused my Mac any problems.
