    I love Lion. Absolutely love it! But, I read that flash is not Lion ready and I really need to check up some stuff on Google Maps about the areas around some apartments... and I was wondering if anybody knows how much until a stable version of Flash is out for Lion? Because I rather not install it and make my MBP slower etc...

    I just installed Chrome for whenever I need to view something that uses Flash.

    10.3.181.26 works fine on my MBP. Google maps with street view works fine.

    flash works perfectly fine on Lion...actually it works better than it did in SL...video seems to actually play really well...it was pretty choppy before.

    Yeah, I'm also using Chrome for the time being. I'd rather do away with Flash permanently, but until I can keeping it isolated in another app (I use Safari) works OK. Chrome has Flash embedded in the app.

    In many websites you can simply go to (enable in Safari preferences) Develop/User Agent/Safari iOS iPad. Most websites will play videos directly in h264.

    I recommend you to install a plugin for playing videos directly in h264:

    I'm using the latest version of Flash out there, the Flash 11 Beta. Haven't noticed any errors or crashes at all. And again Safari isn't leaking memory or any thing like that. :/

    You can simply download Flash off Adobe's website. I already have Flash installed before the Lion upgrade and it's still installed.

    Chrome does have a built-in Flash player so you don't need the plug-in based Flash if you're not planning to use any other browser.
