Adobe Flash Player 11 Beta With 64-Bit Support

Adobe has finally released Flash Player 11 Beta. The distinction of this release is that it has also been released for the much awaited 64-bit technology. Flash Player 11 is still in beta but Adobe plans to release the final version by the end of this year.

Features included in Flash Player 11

Flash Player 64-bit

The biggest and most awaited feature is the 64-bit support. If you want to download and run the 64-bit version of Flash Player 11, you’ll need to have a 64-bit web browser. Most web browsers are 32-bit by default except Internet Explorer or some custom builds of Firefox. All other browsers will be 32-bit and will not be able to have a 64-bit Adobe Flash Player.
