Activation: After installing this program, every piece of content we viewed required us to allow Shockwave to launch first. This seems outdated and slow. If you need to view Shockwave content, then you need to have this piece of software.
However, the odds are that unless you're working specifically with Adobe Director to develop content, you probably don't need this installed on your system. If you do install it, be sure to keep all your other security measures up to date, as there are potential vulnerabilities. Read replies 8. I've attempted to download and install Adobe Shockwave Player for Mac for the last I-don't-know-how-many times an update has been announced and have yet to be able to actually open it given that it tells me "the file cannot be found" after Reader opens and asks me yet again if I want it to be the default for viewing PDF files despite checking "never ask again".
Perusing the FAQ was a further waste of time--it seems that those without administrator privileges lack permission to install but I'm not only the sole user of my computer but wasn't asked to "phone home," either unlike installing, e.

All in all, a monumental waste of personal resources and a rather annoying pain in the posterior. Shockwave site does not do a good job helping you know which one to install, telling you which version you have and telling you how they fixed it. This review was originally posted on VersionTracker. According to Adobe, the system requirements stop at Does that mean it isn't necessary for Snow Leopard, that they haven't made it compatible with Snow Leopard, or that they never heard of Snow Leopard?

Reply by livepargot on August 13, Huh? What is this? Reply by ronnyutest on August 11, can't agree more Report this post. That's just insane. Flash and Shockwave in contrast are limited in that sense, you are constrained to doing what you are able to accomplish with ActionScript or Lingo or at least, that is intended to be the case. Flash is insecure because it's buggy, Java is insecure because it's buggy AND because it's intended to work in ways you'd think are obviously insecure!
Applets, unless especially privileged by the user, run in a sandbox that prevent them from interacting with the local OS . They certainly cannot run EXEs, again, unless the user consents. In theory the Applet sandbox works really well. It's an extremely secure environment that's been deployed widely in the most demanding conditions -- think banks and governments. In practice the Applet security model encountered the following problems: 1 Users are really, really dumb. They are happy to grant escalated privileges to the some 3D farming game they stumbled upon on the internet.
Users will literally click on anything you tell them to. This meant when a real security flaw was discovered it might hang around for years and years and years. There was no mechanism to force users to upgrade Java or to actively disable Java installations proven insecure. Maybe I'm confused because it's only relatively recently that I started again to take Java seriously, but isn't that precisely an example of a domain the Java security manager addresses? Again, I am well aware of the implementation bugs that have existed, and I don't know offhand if the security manager was part of Java's initial design or was added later, but I'm still confused as to why your ire's directed at the general concept of Java in the browser, rather than the specifically flawed implementations.
So you cannot run them offline. Well sorry you can't use some chat app without internet connection, our bad. Not everything is a chat application. But even a chat application can and should partially work without an internet connection: Reading old messages and composing new ones can work offline.

Every time I just got the default "server not found" page of Firefox. Did you try right clicking and choosing "Save as As I said before, it's a 5-minute thing to get started with service-workers. Web-sites can use that and then you don't even need to save. There is this great offline library, fellow developers!
Use it! What other platform gives you such easy-to-use offline capabilities? Navigation situation is still way better than the applets. What is the alternative you are supporting instead the current situation? I don't care if websites can use that if they don't. That's the fucking problem.
Using a proper application platform instead of a pile of hacks on top of the web. Without that pile of hacks, the web would actually be usable because publishers would not be able to break the UX. It's new, and you can still save pages. Browsers will do their best to include all resources they depend as well. Is there any cross-platform one with consistent design and UX? I don't think so. That does not work reliably.
Frankly, even Electron applications are better than making web pages that behave incorrectly. In all your given examples, it does. I just don't understand what you are criticizing anymore. If they made no native function calls, they could not even display a window. I don't see how this contradicts my point at all.
