I've had it installed for a few versions now. Interesting, but to be honest, I forget it is there.

That's rather ironic, considering it is supposed to be 'ubiquitous', but there's no active icon to remind you of its presence. ;)

I think Daemonguy shared this a few months ago and if I remember right I didn't understand it then and I really don't understand it now. :scratchhead:

watch the video on that link. It made a lot more sense after that but basically its a way to extend your web browser to deal with content in ways you wouldn't be normally be able to (at least not easily)

Ahh there's a video.

They should put some sort of "you need flash enabled to see this content" message on there for people like me who browse with plugins/java disabled by default.

And apparently I need to look into updating my Flash player because I've found another flash video that doesn't play in Opera and just crashes Firefox. :scratchhead:

Is this just for Firefox, or am I missing something ?

Think it's just a Firefox add on.

I've been using it a lot lately, to check the weather and look up stuff on Wikipedia. Makes it nice. Just highlight the word, CTRL + space + wiki this

Can't wait until I have a reason to embed a map in my emails.... I'm such a geek :D
