Flash 9 full screen mode speed boost

Author: seven February 8, 2007

I don't know the reason but I love the result. :) If you go to full screen mode, and exit from it, the Flash player gets radical speed up. I noticed this behavior some time ago while working on very cpu consuming calcs w/ Papervision 3D (I actually screwed up the calculations, but the effect remains). It is by all means the weirdest feature currently available in Flash 9 player (can confirm it on Firefox/WinXP). Gooooo Adobe! :)

update: John and Carlos gave me the proof that I didn't go loco - check it out (and cry, John really ruled this one! Rock on PV3D!). On other hand, it could be very subjective thing. Maybe it's all in our heads. :)
