Shockwave Flash v9.0.1 final has just been released (1.9mb). Adobe is also said to be developing a new eBook product that is standards-compliant, and based on Flash 9. I’m someone who has Flash turned off with-extreme-prejudice in IE. But I do have it on my Firefox install, for those few times when it seems worth the effort — for the very occasional ‘dial-up friendly’ interactive multimedia and worthwhile video.
