Adobe Flash Player 10.1 now available for download

Adobe Flash Player 10.1 final is now officially available for Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems. Those who are running the Release Candidate of Flash 10.1 that Adobe made available on April can now upgrade to the “stable” release (yes, an oxymoron, I know) from the download page.

Version 10.1 brings several changes to the plug-in apart from the much touted hard acceleration. Flash 10.1 is reported to be more green with improvements to conserve resources, reduce power usage and extend battery life. Flash Player can now automatically reduce the power consumption for content running in the background on a non-visible browser tab to improve performance when users are multitasking.

Flash Player 10.1 will also abide by the host browser's private browsing mode (where local data and browsing activity are not cached on the local system) providing a consistent private browsing mechanism between SWF and HTML content.

Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
