Hi, that NYT article last week caught my eye too, until I saw that it read “many of these new browser windows then happen to play SWF content” or such.
I’m with you on reducing visits to ad-heavy sites… sometimes I hit ESCAPE after the text loads, because GIF calls to many remote servers typically eat the time.
But do you see a specific connection with the Macromedia Flash Player here, other than how the experience it provides is also desired by many advertisers? Other than that phrasing from the NYT author, what could I do to help…?
Thanks,
John Dowdell
