Privacy is one such issue. IIRC, we previously discussed on LINK
how Macromedia Flash reports back to base everytime you run the flash plugin
in your browser.
This *used to be* documented on their website, but I have fossicked
around, starting at <http://www.macromedia.com/help/privacy.html> and
found nothing relating to this. And takers?
Also: if you read the Flash 6.0 page at
you'll prolly blanche/hiccough/vomit/tailspin when you read all the
"issues" associated with the product. A very instrusive installation
for what should be a "simple plugin".
When will service providers on the web learn that flash plug-in
is not HTML and is not a web standard? Perhaps once they learn that
requiring this odious plugin actually loses them business, they
will mend their ways.
