Macromedia is a software company.......their focus is the web.
programs include; Dreamweaver (web page authoring program), fireworks (focuses on creating web images, jpg & gif), flash (primarily a vector based graphics animation tool but with script has become so much more), freehand (graphics tool similar to illustrator) coldfusion (server side engine for dynamic content similar to .asp) and are all in newest version in studio mx
flash is commonly used for intros but entire sites can be done with it and now theres a flash communication server to work with it for flash chat etc.........
and they make other programs but still mostly web focused; director, homesite, sitespring, fontographer
anyway the flash player 6 (which if files are created in it will want to load newest player to play it) is fine 98% of web users have a version already installed IE6 came with flash5 player.........there was a very small code hole way back but was fixed quickly i believe, also the shockwave player (for director files) is just as safe and stable
i understand why you posted this...anything that says "a quick, free download" gets me suspicious...it reminds me of gator. You got that right DrMatallic, that Gator was a real scum, and so was bonzy buddy, I am Paranoid, because of them, that's exactly what popped into my mind when the download screen came up. As a matter of fact once in awhile, when i visit certain websites, that Gator download comes on, I start playing the keys on this pc like a madman, making sure it does not download! I will check out this possible flaw business first/ too! I made the mistake of upgrading Zone Alarm and my xp would take for ever to Shutdown and it was a resource hog, had to get rid of it, May go to Outpost. Thanks everyone, Tom
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
