I actually don't even use Firefox anymore, which is too bad since it was the original browser
I used to debug because of the firebug, gasp, plugin!

Nigel,

 

Flash still have 90%+ of penetration.  I just uninstalled by firefox.  Which
had 91 security advisories last year. This year it's @ 71, and it's only
July.

If I uninstall flash from my dev machine to protect it ..... (which has all
manner of passwords, confidential data etc, just like yours, I guess?) ....

it makes it rather difficult to continue as a flex dev ;)

Subject: Flex/Flash Viable still?

 

I have approx. 1000 days "invested" in flex programming

 

 

Is there any point in continuing, if the security reputation is so poor that
users have almost no choice but to uninstall ( or run it only on equipment
disconnected from real life, surrounded by firewalls, moats, Doberman dogs )

 

 

For those with apps already "in-the-wild", is user reassurance becoming a
large part of your standard month task-list?

 

How many have a standard email template for "another security flaw
discovered, update flash player immediately again (and scan for this

malware) ?

I'm on the fence but learning over it somewhat- Giving up the ghost?

 

 

I must look to see if VB has improved in the 7 years since I last used it.
