This result surprised me, really. I thought that it would be much higher. I understand that it is not a worldwide statistics but app. 1/5 of top 5000 sites using Flash is really not a good sign or is it?
Final conclusion, with a so deep penetration of the Flash Player we can only be happy to develop for the Flash Player
Yesterday I wrote about the new “CS3 essential training” from Lynda and said that the penetration for the Flash Player 9 was about 50%. I had a comment from Benz that told me the penetration of the Flash Player is 83.4% according to Emmy Huang’s blog.
Those number are higher that what I observed on different website I work on, even on this blog (oriented on Flash), the stats are 80% but this is not trustable with my poor 300 visitors/days.
Anyway it’s a great news as I’m wanting to work on Flash 9 at work, and good stats always are a good argument
Great news coming from Ryan Stewart blog’s on Zdnet.He asked to Mike Chambers about the number of downloaded Apollo runtime. Answer 110’000
In terms of penetration of an alpha runtime I guess it’s a quite good results. Even if I’m sure that the cool tools build by the community will make this number increase very quickly.
Read the complete question-answer.
Here’s a quick post to show the number of post containing “Adobe Apollo”. I post it here because I had already see some chart of Technorati, but never found were it was… (okay maybe it’s obvious but forgive my blindness).
