    Yes, yes I do.

    There's a big difference between what the web designer sees when he/she designs something, to what he/she intends you to see. For instance, if the website is designed on a 50" monitor does that mean I can't see it as the designer intended on my lowly 3" mobile? Not at all.

    But if the designer intended you to view something in flash you won't be able to see it on an IPad, regradless of te monitor/Ipad size.

    You do realise we're agreeing on this right?

    Depends on whether using flash is appropriate or not. If he intends that I have to sit through an unskippable intro page of how great his client is I can manage with out that. If he uses flash so he can have a brilliant page turning animation then he can cram it. If he has a half decent brain in his body then he will use it to complement his design or add greater functionality that regresses gracefully if is not available. The great thing about having NoScript is you get to see if a site was designed well or not by how long it takes me to need to add an exception for flash or some javascript addition. The better sites I see I can get everything fine with a little message telling me that I flash would make my life complete. I then allow it just to see what I am missing and find I wasn't missing anything.

    & only 30% of the web available? Really. Considering 66% of flash videos are now also available as H.264 I find this stat dubious.

    What is very interesting is the replacements for Flash that are out there.

    I genuinely expect that over the next year or two, flash will steadily be replaced by HTML5 Video and animations.

    There's already an HTML5 version of YouTube, and if you Google CSS3 Spider Man, the first result is a complete animation (first post so I can't link to it! :@ ) with no embedded video and absolutely no Flash. It's a heck of a lot more lightweight and nicer to the browser than a big clunky flash player too.

    In my opinion, I think Flash's days are numbered online.

    That CSS3 Spiderman played fine on Firefox on an iMac. On my iPad, animation fine with Atomic Browser, but no sound. Usng Safari on iPad animation very jerky and missing frames, and no sound. But shows that we'll be there soon.
