Google It's no secret that the relationship between Apple and Adobe isn't particularly healthy at this point, and despite the nicely staged coffee moment, nor is the relationship between Apple and Google. It seems like this is bringing together Google and Adobe: rumour has it that Flash will be bundled with the Chrome web browser and/or the upcoming Chrome operating system. Update: It's official: "When users download Chrome, they will also receive the latest version of Adobe Flash Player. There will be no need to install Flash Player separately. Users will automatically receive updates related to Flash Player using Google Chrome's auto-update mechanism."

Enough BS. Anything that allows third-party intervention without prior consent is enough to be defined as "opened". The OP was asserting that Flash content couldn't be scanned and indexed because it's encoded in a way that's not quite as plain as HTML, and the answer was that the format was documented by Adobe, so it can be done, period.
