Flash Player 9 @ 93.3% in September penetration study

The September stats are now up on Adobe.com. Thanks to Millward-Brown and our web team for giving us a quick turnaround so we could get these live before Adobe MAX.

The first row is how we present the data on the website. It tells you the percentage of people that can view a SWF of that version. The second row, is the % of the population with that player version installed (the delta between v and v+1).

September 2007 – Mature Markets v6 v7 v8 v9
% able to view content by SWF version 99.1% 99.1% 98.4% 93.3%
Install base by version 0.0%* 0.7% 5.1% 93.3%

* Looks like people finally retired their old machines and are upgrading to more current hardware :-)
