I read performance should be better with Flash Player 10. I haven't  
done any measurements myself though. It seems to work fine though.  
Check out the instructions on http://macromedia.mplug.org/ when  
upgrading to Flash Player 10. You should be able to skip step 3 if you  
have Firefox 3.0.2 installed (which is the current Firefox in CentOS  
5), that is a workaround for a bug in Firefox 3.0.1 (and older?).
