The highly anticipated December NPD study is now available online. This is the first study to include Flash Player 8 penetration, and it looks like auto-update and Express Install really gave us a kick start out of the gate with the study reporting 45.2% penetration three months after the release. This is 56% faster than Flash Player 6 and Flash Player 7 in the first quarters of those releases. And, based on the server stats from our hosting company, Akamai, Flash Player 8 has been downloaded over 1.4 billion times since the September launch.
Have fun presenting all of your cool Flash 8 content concepts to your clients. 😉
