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)

Flash performance

It makes me chuckle a little bit to see Adobe now so concerned about the performance of Flash now that Silverlight is being used more. I still mostly see Flash videos sites and stupid take-over Flash advertisements. I still have pages lock up on me because of the Flash plugin. I think the only useful example of Flash I have seen lately is streaming HD videos of the A-Team from Hulu and maybe some of the interactive financial applets on Etrade. I still can't believe web designers create menus in Flash instead of just using HTML and CSS. There should be a special place in Dante's hell for Flash based navigation created by web designers using Dreamweaver.
