Flash Player 10.2 has hit the scene, and those who are expecting just a few bug fixes need to take a second look. Adobe's thrown in a couple extra useful goodies for us.
Not only does the new Flash Player play very nicely with AMD Fusion, but efficiency has been increased with the inclusion of Stage Video which according to Adobe "can effortlessly play beautiful 1080p HD video with just 1-15% CPU usage on a common Mac or Windows computer." Websites have to integrate Stage Video for it to work, but the speedup of delivery that it provides should help those that have stuttering issues.
The other major addition is the ability to watch a Flash video in all its fullscreen glory on a second monitor while working on the first for those with multimonitor setups. This will be a boon for multitaskers, or maybe even those who just want a fun video playing while they work on something else. This will definitely become a new test for your focus.
