The top 5 things in Flash that annoys me daily:
- Browser shortcuts (like, Ctrl+W, Ctrl+T) do not work when focused on flash elements, since it consumes all the keyboard events. I’d expect it to at least pass them to browser if it doesn’t handle a key event, but it doesn’t even bother.
- Zoom doesn’t work - Ctrl++, Ctrl+- are useless. You have to read the content in SWF in the published size itself. You cannot increase or decrease it size. :(
- Middle Click doesn’t work - I can’t open a link in new tabs. Opening links in new tabs from SWF is a small-size challenge.
- I can’t find the text I’m looking for with Ctrl + F. You can’t just search in Flash content, unless the SWF itself contains a search box & search implementation.
- Its pretty famous & is gonna stay there longer. And the worst part - everyone uses it in their site, though there is absolutely no need for it (making my browsing experience annoying) :(
