Rule by crap that won't die

Another sad tale - this fellow finds that his sleek, Cloud-optimized, synchronizable, ultramodern Chrome is disrupted by Flash.  He sadly turns Flash off and on again as he struggles through his day, waiting for that magical day when the technology fairy comes and kills Flash dead.

Could be a long wait.  Steve Jobs wrote its epitaph two and half years ago - he's gone, it's still here.  It will be fully integrated into the Metro interface browser in Windows 8, despite massive continued vulnerabilities.

Which got me wondering, what ever happened to IE6?  Yup, still doing fine - 22% share in the PRC.  Good luck getting that fire out.

And Framework's long exile continues.  There is no justice.

On the bright side, I think I just found a new look for me!
