    does anyone know percentage of web users that can view flash

    I need to know how what sort of proportion of users on the web have browsers that can view Flash. What about if a Flash movie is created using Flash MX, how much does this figure then fall and is it possible to save Flash movies to a previous version using Flash mx,
    thanks

    i think it's like 97% of the public has flash mx installed.. the only problem is blind peeps cant see it. (no screen readers can read flash)

    note: it's mostly school computers that DONT have it installed. Most public computers have it already installed.

    Yep, 97% as of June 2003: http://www.macromedia.com/software/p...s/flashplayer/

    But the Eolas lawsuit might get in the way of that... Hopefully not, with the W3C's help.

    Hi

    thanks a lot,
    when did browsers start supporting javascript. How does javascript support compare to Flash support, I assume it must be a percent or two more then?

    javascript is widely supported. but a lot of people turn it off. so like 13% of the people who go to your site won't have JS installed.

    Hi

    Really, I didnt know that,
    so that means that menus or anything else written in Flash is more widely supported than Javascript.
    Why do some people turn Javascript off?
