so how is everybody doing without flash?

am i alone in the fact that flash refuses to play nice with win7. and no browser is immune to it's deadly ilk, that win7 is starting to emanate. no sou gesly folks, it doesn't matter what browser i try to get flash installed on, it jus will not happen.

unless one of you geniuses figured out a way..... eh?

You do realize there's no x64 version of Flash, right? Using a x64 bit version won't work. Otherwise, it's working fine in Opera, Firefox, IE8 and Chrome.

Then again, we are geniuses.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64.

It's adobe that needs to pull its's finger out with regards to x64 bit version. As you say though flash is installed and playing on chrome and IE8. Cant comment on the other two as I don't use them.
