Flash 10 update

Four days ago I installed Flash 10 on my laptop. I was hoping it would solve some of the issues I was having with Flash. Unfortunately I haven't seen many differences at all. I'm not sure if my problems are related to Flash itself or nspluginwrapper but Flash still crashes or hangs my browser occasionally and some Flash videos still don't work, they just display a gray box where the video should be. The good news is that Flash hasn't crashed X yet which started happening on my laptop recently with Flash 9. Also I haven't had any regressions yet so that's good news. I would recommend checking it yourself. I would love to know how well it is working on 32-bit machines.

UPDATE: Shortly after posting this I visited some other flash sites that normally worked with Flash 9 and they were not working correctly. I reverted to Flash 9 for the time being and things are back to "normal".
