Web 2.0 A quick round up of various web-related news items. First up, a new open source product entitled the "Highgate media suite" will bring OGG video decoding to Silverlight. Microsoft have just joined the SVG working group (arguably 10 years late, but it's better than nothing). Adobe promise significant improvements in Flash 10.1, including Core Animation rendering on OS X and lowered CPU usage. Finally, CoperLicht--a WebGL JavaScript 3D engine (Quake in JS will be here one day)

From my own experience, Flash have never, ever , crashed on me, but, it can get a lot better. there is a lot of room for improvement, the problem I experiment every day is false video loading, I have to reload the page a couple of times to make it work.

Flash may be for animation, but definitively, is not for video.

Yes, they are strange times we live in - when a technology originally intended for vector animation and simple games is the de-facto standard for web video.
