The Internet was once a text-only place. Then along came faster connections that allowed simple graphics and animations.
Now, thanks to broadband, the Internet is a full-blown, interactive extravaganza. Sites have so many fun features, it's a veritable feast for your eyes.
One of the primary tools for website interactivity is Adobe Flash Player. Using the Flash Player, you can watch videos, listen to audio or view interactive animations. Everything happens right in your Web browser.
For most browsers, you need to install Flash Player manually - Chrome has it built in. Fortunately, it's a free download and it's easy to update to protect your computer.
Even if you already have Flash Player installed, it might be an older version. This can leave your computer vulnerable to hackers and viruses. Check to make sure you have the most recent version of Flash Player here.
