Not using Adobe’s Flash makes web browsing a better experience

Adobe’s products take a big hit in the communities.  No one seems to like them, but instead are forced to use them.  Will Adobe take notice someday?  Or, has there been so much backlash that they have simply stopped listening to their customers.

Harry Waldron started a thread in the forums over the past couple days, talking to topics surrounding the recent decision by Adobe to force customers to upgrade to the just released version instead of Adobe fixing security problems with the older versions right away.

Today, Harry makes this statement:

My favorite security approach is to keep Flash disabled, as I've been doing for months now.  A few times I've had to toggle it on, (e.g.,. a legitimate need at a few sites and to test out releases of Adobe), but I always toggle it off immediately after I'm done.  I don't have Flash installed or active in my other browsers.

At work, keeping Flash disabled has actually improved my browsing experiences.
