Flash support reaches RISC OSPublished: 23rd Aug 2001, 20:04:53 | Permalink | Printable
Flash support has been with us for some time but now it comes bundled with R-Comp's browserR-Comp, the prolific RISC OS software company, today announced that its web browser will come equipped with new plug-in support.
From now on the cheap-but-functional WebsterXL will have built in support for Flash, PDF and MIDI files.
Existing users will be able to upgrade their software for free, according to the R-Comp upgrade policy.
RISC OS browsers are playing catch-up to their Mac, Windows and Linux counterparts as development of new plug-ins is slow, if not nonexistent.
The ability to interpret Flash, PDF and, to a lesser extent, MIDI files is regarded as standard by many professional web developers who are increasingly unwilling to provide alternative content for incompatible browsers.
