I just can't believe that it's 10 years on.
At least it's now being used in far better ways. Remember the overuse in the early years?
What do you mean overuse!?! Splash pages were AWESOME!
If one day, browsers gonna be the 'only' thing we need at client side,
then action scripting is really something we need to know about.
Oh how I wish it would just die already...
One awesome feature of Flash is the ability to important video and then natively stream it without a lot of fancy dancing -- and then there's a user base that is just plain HUGE. Native streaming of media alone is a happy achievement for this ten-year old.
Happy birthday, Flash!
Long live Flash!
3 cheers for Actionscript!
Hooray for sophisticated vector-based interactive streaming content!
Though these days I try to do everything with DHTML, ASP.NET and AJAX, there are many things that can only be done in a good old SWF. Still part of my toolbox, though collecting dust.
Flash? Die? a curse on thee, unbeliever.
I just hope they won't load up photoshop with bunch of flash features, it's already getting bloated with other stuff.
Agreed - application bloat since the adobe/macromedia takeover is monstrous - about 100meg difference in Flash 8!
Is flashplayer to be installed as standard on Vista+IE7?
Flash I will always love ya.
I remember seeing a demo of Flash (b4 it was called that) at Internet World in Los Angeles in 1996.
I remember all of the people watching the demo in jaw dropping amazement when they saw animation embedded in a web page. It was truly a break through that no one had ever seen before.
This is spooky, hard to believe it was 10 years as my wife worked at Macromedia when Flash came out and they were Flash enabling all their products...

integration of Flash with the Adobe family is a great idea - better vector and raster editing of Flash objects is warmly welcomed. But I hope the suite is kept as separate products, and the only enhancement is creating easily portable objects for editing this or that.
I for one am scared that I'll look in the Photoshop Layers palette and see a timeline with key frames. eeek!
I'm actually hoping to see a timeline with key frames in Photoshop. Integration like that would be great.
I always thought that better integration into Illustrator would be a wise route to take. You can't beat Illustrators capabilities for vectors.
I'm actually surprised that flash is being integrated with Photoshop and not Illustrator. Being that they are both vector.
None the less I am curious to see the end result.
If you read the article it's being integrated with Creative Suite - so that includes Photoshop AND Illustrator (the title of this thread is a bit incomplete).
