The glorious future of the mighty Flash killer. Welcome, welcome. We've been expecting you. With all your ridiculously stupid troubles, too.

So the browsers at risk don't follow the recommendations the standard says they should, kinda funny.

I wonder if IndexedDB would be susceptible to an attack like this.

I am glad we are replacing Adobe Flash with this new technology.

Mmm, yes.

Please, tell me more about how everyone should use Webkit instead of following open web standards. :whistle:

not trying to flame or anything, just my two cents....this serves to prove that nothing is flawless....instead of jumping the gun and trying to drop flash/flex and so on to adopt html5, one should wait until the platform matures enough and standards are set in stone.

HTML5 isn't even a set standard yet chaps...

...and web storage is only at recommendation stage.

in other words...it's like complaining that is a house is cold before the builder has installed the doors and windows.

^ Well, then perhaps we shouldn't have moved into this house yet... and set the old rented apartment ablaze with such a profound sensation of accomplishment? Gosh knows it may start to rain fish and the roof may not hold as well.

If the effected vendors had actually paid attention to the spec that specifically has recommendations to stop this from occuring, naturally this wouldn't of happened.

Props to Mozilla for actually paying attention.

Given that the problem affects Trident and Presto as well that's a pretty stupid comment to make.

No, you just think it's stupid because you're a "Google shill", to borrow your own terminology from other threads.

This not only proves that open web standards and adherence to them is important, but that having a single rendering/layout engine is a bad thing.
