Killed Flash

Flash has now been entirely removed from my site, where it was used for showing videos on a few pages. Instead I now use the HTML5 <video> tag and converted the videos into new formats. The video tag is now supported by all main browsers and it has been around for a while so most people will have this feature supported by now. The only annoyance is that there is a split over which format to use. While Firefox and Chrome support the open standard format WebM, Safari and Internet Explorer only support the patent encumbered H.264. The workaround for now is to provide both versions and let the browser choose.

Here's a page, from back in 2006, where I have now replaced the Flash player with an HTML5 <video> tag:
