    I am pretty new to Flash, can anyone tell me what Browsers / Versions support flash? Or does someone need to always download the flash player if it is not on their machine?

    Thanks very much!

    The leading browsers, the ones you need to be concerned with anyway - IE4+, Nescape4+, Opera and iCab - can all play flash movies (.swfs) provided the plugin is installed. The likes of Lynx (text-based brwosers), not a chance.

    Some of the scripting might perform differently from browser to browser. But, again, nothing significant to really worry about.

    Embedded within the HTMLscript generated when you publish a movie is a redirecting link to the download page (pluginspage), in case the user doesn't have the plugin installed. The most recent browser versions support this.

    According to the macromedia website, 98.3% of web users have a Flash Player installed.
