    Flash might just end up in the same tier as RealPlayer and Netscape Navigator in the realm of "Retrospectively Awful Computery Things" one day!

    I do hope so. Even companies and people that use flash as a vector animation program (which it's obviously decent at otherwise people would have jumped ship sooner) release them as videos on stream sites instead nowadays.

    A lot of surprisingly fun games were released on Flash. But for video streaming...

    Anyway, how strange for them to 'advertise' something they're trying to kill off.

    Sadly I still need to use it, because some just can't move on without it. Streaming sites and such. ;-;

    Flash may have outlived its usefulness but to people who bitch and complain that it's good-for-nothing...

    Were things really so much better in the days where every website that wanted to show video needed a custom plugin, be it realpayer, windows media plugin, or any of the other people vying for top stop?

    No... them days were bad days. Flash becoming a standard did great things for media on the internet

    I agree, (also ppl who complain about buffering over cable = lol) but flash player is a resource hog.

    I had to install a add blocker on my acer sub-notebook, because it couldn't play a single online anymore....
    (now it plays them sorta fine again :/)
    Flash and java are things I don't really want on my pc, because nearly all new viruses get on your pc trough them :/
    (don't use java)
