Please don't include me. I love it. I'm not talking about crappy endlessly-loading no-info Flash sites but the tool itself. I know it's been likened to a hammer in this forum, and I know some of the arguments for and against (and yes, it needs a plug-in, and raises important accessibility issues), but as a pure design tool, it can be a dream. I'm no Flash guru but for one thing vector graphics slashes load time, and wasn't it Brett Tabke who said each second over about five loses 10% of your visitors? For a site with graphics, that's maybe losing more visitors than a Google filter. And there's much much more.
I'm certain that like ATW did for a while, Google has long been able to read inside a .swf file - and not just links. The day when Flash pages are as indexable for their written content as any other web page can't come soon enough for me. Apart from anything else, it's time for a good shakeup - though doubtless Google will tread cautiously.
