I get the feeling Flash is a sinking ship. Slashdot regulars know of the critical comments (bloat, security) that comes up whenever there is a mention of Flash. No Flash support in the iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. It seems to have lost its lustre over the years.

Kudos on adding Flash support. But what else do you have?

I try to avoid flash on my websites.
You can do so many thing with javascript now...

But it's a question of choice.

Flash is dying, unfortunately Adobe wont accept that because of the $ they invested in purchasing Macromedia. Flash at one time was 'new and fresh' but that ship sailed a long time ago.
