Rob Ford interviews me about the era when making full-bleed Flash sites was cool. Remember Gabocorp? Remember big animating blobs? Yep, Flash was a big part of my past, and if you’ll indulge me, I reminisce about it at length.

Our hope is that the robust integration between Chrome and Flash Player will serve as a showcase for more consistent, seamless, and efficient Web browsing experiences. We feel that this significant effort by both Google and Adobe will directly improve the speed of innovation and move the Web forward, benefiting the entire community of developers and end-users.
The benefits touted include transparent auto update and a more crash proof experience. Which, if true, makes the above statement even more juicy in the ongoing war both Google and Adobe wage against Apple.

object tags, causing properly embedded Flash content to simply not show up, even when Adblock is disabled. For A Better Experience, Upgrade Today!
