That is all well and good but...
Until the likes of the BBC and others too numerous to name get off their fat arses and nuke the need for flash from their end this bodge by Apple will still be needed.
As for Silverlight, the darn thing keeps appearing in the list of optional things to install/patch. MS could nuke it if they wanted but they can't be bovvered (like everything else it seems ATM).
I wanted to see how to remove haze from some photos. All the turorials demanded flash. So I had to listen to the sound description and try to work it out from there.
Can someone please stick a knife in Flash. I'll even buy them a few pints. I susprect that I would not be alone the day that 99.99% of the internet works without flash installed.
