Hi,
After reading about the many security problems with Adobe products. I would like to know if there is an alternative to the Adobe Flash Player?

I have
Adobe Flash Player 10.x 10.0.32.18 (General Plug-in)
C:\Programmi\Opera\program\plugins\NPSWF32.dll
Adobe Flash Player 10.x 10.0.32.18 (ActiveX)
C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash\Flash10c.ocx
Adobe Flash Player 10.x 10.0.32.18 (General Plug-in)
C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash\NPSWF32.dll
Adobe Reader 9.x 9.2.0.124 This I have replaced with Foxit Reader.

I am running Windows XP Pro Sp2 512MB RAM with Pent4 3Ghz
I use the following browsers, MSIE 7, Firefox 3.5.4, Opera 10.01

Thanks in advance

The answer for Flash is basically no . Try Googling (or use your preferred search engine) "Adobe Flash Alternatives" and you will see that for yourself .

The same applies to Shockwave .

Other Adobe products do have alternatives , try your searches and then check user Forums .

Take care
Anthony

PS: "security problems" should not be confused with "patching problems" ; your current Flash versions do not have any vulnerabilities that I know of , as of now.
