It seems Flash Player has started to suck. While watching this fine Flash animation (courtesy Jim), Mozilla crashed halfway through. So I loaded it in OmniWeb, which crashed about 3/4 of the way through. Finally I opened it in QuickTime Player, which actually let me skip past the part I had already seen. Imagine that, Macromedia, not wanting to re-watch a multi-minute presentation from the beginning!

The plugin version I'm using is 5.0r58. I see Flash Player 6 is out, I guess I'll try that, but I'm not very hopeful. Programs tend not to return from a state of extreme bugginess in subsequent versions. This dictates that the Jaguar Finder will suck at least as much as the 10.1 one does, but I still hold out hope.
