We need the ability built-in to Netscape/Mozilla to FULLY control FLASH files. It is so irritating to be FORCED to put up with sometimes huge bandwidth and memory-eating damnable Flash files that someone thought were cute and/or necessary.
There has to be a coding genious out there somewhere who knows how or will learn how to give us the ability to handle FLASH files in exactly the same way as images. The ability to allow loading, loading under certain conditions, not loading at all, or as in the case of animations, the ability to fully run, run once, or not run the animation at all. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE there has to be someone who can do this. There are an awful lot of us out here on the Web who would be forever grateful and to be honest, I'd pay for the ability to be able to hve control over which flash files, if any, are loaded on my computer. I'm talking about the ability being available as you surf and NOT just entering certain websites that you have previously visited and set up site-specific controls. That just doesn't cut it.
Anyway, that's my request just tossed out for some coding genius to ponder. Heck, some of us would even pay to be able to take control of our computers and browsers back from Macromedia.
Any support out there for this one? If so, make it known. Post requests for such an animal on the appropriate message boards like this one including Netscape and Mozilla (but especially Mozilla as it's used to guide Netscape's advancement and improvements.)
