The Adobe Flash Player is a browser-based application that enables you to view expressive content on websites that display animation, videos or interactive graphics. To get the best of Flash, it is important that you keep it up to date. In some instances, you will need to update Flash through a proxy due to network restrictions keeping you from accessing the Flash update web page or because you want to update Flash through an anonymous and secure server, which is one of the features a proxy delivers. Updating Flash through a proxy is a simple task.
