[QUOTE=Xercus;2764376]Not too interesting really as it has been known for years, only now Adobe admits to it. There is a balance here which, like walking a tight rope, has to be executed carefully.[/QUOTE]
That can’t be said enough…here…
[QUOTE=Xercus;2764376]Our computer is not safe either for that matter, and we have seen it with Java which has become less in terms of usability with its rigid policy (no offline gaming a.s.o.). Flash has it’s usage and it can be pretty much tamed by the user, trouble is not too many knows how.[/QUOTE]

[QUOTE=Xercus;2764376]They are ‘yodelling’ about HTML5/XML, sure, but how long will it be before that turns out to be a piece of Swiss cheese just like anything else web-enabled?[/QUOTE]It has it’s own flaws - just wait and it will come out and they will excuse it as growing pains…that is a load of BS.

In my mind, the sheer number of youtube videos alone will make sure Flash will exist for quite some time still.[/QUOTE]
That’s the problem try to kill the horse that has gotten out of the barn is alot harder then they say it is.
[QUOTE=Xercus;2764376]The recent downvote in ‘gÃ¸ggel’ searces for flash-enabled sites is, as I see it, all the craze is about… It is also my clear understanding of the case that this is Adobe, as the captain, trying to jump the sinking ship before the passengers.[/QUOTE]Unless something else is better then Flash it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. HTML5 for all it glitz has flaws that will show up. And those programmers know it.
