I told the whiners of Flash if they hate Flash ads, they can disable the
plugin by default with the browser, and there are plenty of those add-in's.
But once the same Flash ad producers start making the same crappy ads in
HTML 5, there is no more block HTML 5 feature.  :)  They still don't get it,
they still think Google's JS engine is faster than AVM2, true -- but Flash
is very fast when translating DisplayObject to pixels on the screen, whereas
HTML DOM -- that's where all the bottlenecks are.

Usually I'm not a gossip but since this is OT...

What I laugh at is Flash adds could only "do" so much because of it's
restrictions as a plugin.

Now, how many times do you get HTML5 JS popup advertisements that take over
your whole friggin screen. They force you to click close, who knows where
those close clicks will be taking you in a year, I just hit the back button.

The common man thought Flash was bad with adds, just wait till more and more
incompetent designers get their hands on the JS popup libraries, you will be
thinking your browser is getting locked out by adds because now we have div
popups that the browser really can't do anything about.

2cents over...
