I recently flipped the click to play switch on Flash again; but the number of sites that default to or only (I've got better things to do than poke around looking for a setting that probably requires me to create an account to store) offer flash video is high enough that after 1 day I'm already leaning towards toggling it back to automatic loading. Sigh | :sigh:

Unless most of the random sites hosting video world follows Google's lead and defaults to serving desktop browsers HTML5, I don't think we're going to be able to escape it anytime soon unless Mozilla's html5 powered flash player[^] is a success. It's been around for a while without getting done enough to be useful; but in relation to the war on NSAPI plugins I recently saw them setting targets for later this year about being able to replace flash for all the major video players on the market.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
