About Flash Player

Early on, the need for viewers of Flash content to use a player was considered to be a drawback to creating Web content with Flash. Designers feared that users would be reluctant to spend time downloading another helper application for their browsers. But Flash has become the de facto standard for vector art and animation on the Web, and Flash Player for Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer is now widely distributed.

Flash Player is available with the current versions of the two most popular Web browsers (Netscape and Explorer). Flash Player also comes with the latest versions of both the Macintosh and Windows operating systems, and it is built into the applications of America Online and EarthLink. Macromedia estimates that more than 200 million people are equipped to view Web sites created with Flash technology.
