Adobe Testing Optimized Version of Flash for MacBook Air

Adobe's Shantanu Narayen says the company is testing an optimized version of Flash for the MacBook Air, according to Engadget.

Recent reports found that removing Flash from the MacBook Air can increase battery life by up to 2 hours.

We asked the CEO what the greater battery life sans flash in Apple's new laptop meant for the platform (vis-a-vis HTML5) just a few minutes ago. He said it's really all about optimizing for silicon: "When we have access to hardware acceleration, we've proven that Flash has equal or better performance on every platform." You wouldn't be blamed for thinking that sentence a cop-out, but that's actually not the case -- the chief executive says they've presently got a Macbook Air in the labs and have an optimized beta of Flash for the device in testing even as we speak.
