Internettet kører bedre uden Flash

Flash-blokeringSteve Jobs var højre. The first person who advised me to get a Flash blocker was Blake Matheny. Blake is one of the best engineers I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with – and I’ve worked with him both at Kompendium og ved ChaCha. Man skulle tro, at jeg ville have lyttet til en fyr, der forvandlede hele infrastrukturen og platformen til mindst to forskellige teknologivirksomheder.

I didn’t listen to him. I just kept plodding along… using Chrome and Firefox and watching pages freeze, stall, or even lock up my laptop temporarily. At times, I had to kill the browsers.

Denne sidste uge havde jeg et fantastisk møde med Michael Cloran fra Udviklerby. Michael has collected the best of the best in developer talent with his venture startup… and guess what? They all use flash blockers. He told me he recently started using one and it’s been incredible how fast sites are rendered and how few problems he’s had.

Så tirsdag besluttede jeg at prøve det. Jeg indlæste en flashblokker til Chrome. Jeg har været i himlen hele ugen. Alt indlæses hurtigere, intet fryser, og jeg savner slet ikke Flash-oplevelsen. Fra tid til anden har jeg brug for Flash, så blokeringen giver mig mulighed for blot at klikke på Flash-komponenten, og den indlæses. Derudover kan jeg højreklikke (f.eks. Youtube) og vælge at lade Flash altid indlæses fra webstedet.

If you’re running another browser, you have options:

You’d be amazed at how many sites utilize Flash. I have a feeling that some of the site owners don’t even realize it. From time to time, I load up this blog and didn’t realize that 3 advertisements were coming up in Flash. There’s nothing prangende about them… but they’re there!

Here’s a more obvious example, the Alerding Castor websted uden og med Flash. Musning over flashen fremhæver det, og klik på det kører Flash-modulet.

As HTML 5 becomes a reality, Adobe really needs to get it’s but in gear to re-architect Flash from the ground up. I don’t like agreeing with Steve Jobs, but in this case he’s dead on. As for companies who are staking their futures on Flash, you may want to get a back-up plan. If you haven’t seen HTML 5, Apple has a stor demonstration... selvom de kræver, at du bruger Safari til at se det.
