Er, what a shockwave...
Well, in the interests of neo-nero:nerd harmony, I've installed Flash on my
copies of ie, seachimp, and opera (-was already on ff.) Will admit that
the 'F' sites I've hit so far haven't been very obnoxious, though there's
plenty of time. I found it interesting that one needs to have Flash
installed to view content on CBS Innertube even though you still must have
WMP or Real Player, too.
Thanks for the info.
