This is just beautiful, not only does the Flash installer window lack a shadow (Because “Flat” UI is so hot right now) it’s also seemingly running an entire web browser engine for the simple task of displaying a bit of text, a progress bar and a button. The incompetent devs even forgot to disable drag events.

Although credit where credit it due the installer progress bar DOES reach 100% now, well done Flash dev team! I mean you might have had to resort to loading an entire HTML engine, you might have go so far over budget you could no longer afford Window shadows and judging by the jump at the end of installing I have a sneaking suspicion someone wrote a “if progress > 85 then progress = 100” statement but you did it! you got the blue bar to go all the way to the end of the gutter!

This is your moment Flash dev team! Well done!

Thanks Simon for sending this in.

Flash: So this is pretty funny.

"Yeah let’s remove AS 2.0 because no one uses that anymore right? Especially not banner ad networks which is pretty much the main use for this tool.

Oh wait…”

Seems like even Adobe wants Flash dead at this point.

  We need a list of files with a progress readout, what’s the best way to implement this?
  
  A Flash movie embedded in a panel with custom scrollbars and buttons of course!


The InDesign team are full of smart ideas.

As if this wasn’t funny enough it turns out this panel actually has a loading bar when you first open it.
