Congratulations Macromedia, with a new site. I like the design, but that is about all the good things I can say about the site.
I guess it is true that a picture is worth more than a thousand words. In this case its worth more than any words, because without Flash – using Opera – this is what I get:
I guess Macromedia isn’t all too interested in trying to push Flash on me either, not even to allow me to view their site..
Branden has some comments about the new Macromedia site that is worth reading.
[Update] The MM site does not work in Opera 7.02. It gets stuck in a loop the startup screen with the “Initiating Application Manager…” coming in, and then a glimse of the menu, before it start all over. Highly unusable. (This with the Flash 6 player installed).
we are working with Opera to resolve the issue.
the problem is because Opera continually reloads the flash content, so it is difficult if not impossible for us to work around.
Why is it I am not seeing that problem on any of the other Flash MX/6 sites I have tried? And why is it that you are not checking for browser and redirecting Opera users to a static page?
As an interim solution you can go to the following URL and select HTML version:
fyi, you should be able to load the main page now.
there was a bug with the way that Opera handles & in the flash vars params, which made it keep reloading it.
for more comments on the website and browser compatibility.
