Adobe fixing Flash on the Mac

What with the whole Flash/iPad and Flash/HTML5 thing, Adobe must be getting nervous. Flash has - for as long as I can remember - always been less efficient on Macs than PCs, but Adobe says they are going to address that in the 10.1 update: a 480p video on a 1.8Ghz Mac Mini in Safari uses about 34 percent of CPU on Mac versus 16 percent on Windows (running in BootCamp on same hardware). With Flash Player 10.1, we are optimizing video rendering further on the Mac and expect to reduce CPU usage by half, bringing Mac and Windows closer to parity for video.
