isn't clicktoflash a solution that they should use, then? give people the choice.....I use GlimmerBlocker for ads and CLick2Flash to block flash.
Flash is widely used but it's losing ground (source: Daring Fireball).
I know many people can't live without it but it's a matter of waiting for developers to stop using flash.
Before Flash was used mostly to show an ugly and stupid presentation to enter a website. It got widely used when websites started the video format wars. You had quicktime, realplayer, vmw...
At that time most people used Desktops and videos where small resolution. Nobody knew/cared about optimization/cpu consumption. Today notebooks are more used and battery life is important.
New technologies are arriving to substitute Flash. They are better and exist now. You just have to wait for developers to adapt. Youtube and Vimeo are already pushing html5 in their videos, so we should expect for other big and small websites to follow.
Flash video is dying SOON. What about games? That's another story.
depends how old they are. kids drink alcohol in some countries. kids take pharmaceuticals for medicinal purposes.No.
Flash sucks, so click to flash does not make it suck any less.
That is like should we let our kids use drugs. No we should not let them do drugs, unless they want to use drugs, and in that case we should then let them use drugs.
I suppose you're trying to make some kind of point. Well done. I'll be happy when Flash has gone the way of IE6. If the increase in the number of devices like the iPad that do not support Flash hastens its demise, I'm all for it.So you didn't last very long I guess.
I'm just saying if the content is what you wanted, you didn't care that it was flash....or you wouldn't have used it.I suppose you're trying to make some kind of point. Well done.

IE6's market share has been in freefall for ages, which is why companies like Google are happy to abandon support for it:You mean widely used, widely supported, and a requirement for lots of enterprise and in house/custom software, much to the despiar of sys admins everywhere?
Actually, I do care and I will continue to advocate the use of better alternatives.I'm just saying if the content is what you wanted, you didn't care that it was flash....or you wouldn't have used it.
I don't like flash....it hits my CPU hard, but there are times where I don't mind. I'm watching TWIT live right now.
I agree. I would also like to get the content that I need to get rather than waiting for the switch. I'm hoping everyone switches to HTML5 right now, but I still need a way to get to those that don't.Actually, I do care and I will continue to advocate the use of better alternatives.
