Response to: Not quite unbiased enough yet

mesh: SVG may be in this space as a prototype, but the Flash player is already there, including, but not limited to:


darobin: I meant prototype as in "not in widespread use" because few people have such devices as yet. But the players are most definitely there.


mesh: Flash is very capable of creating complex application front ends. In fact, with Flash MX this is rather simple.


darobin: As I said, I've been there several times and I'm *never* using SWF ever again now that I can use SVG. MX only adds a subset of the needs I've had, SVG has almost everything.
