wikipedia:Comparison of HTML5 and Flash[edit]

...exists. Where could we work in a link? Does it belong in the "References" section, or should I create "See also"? Eighty5cacao 20:22, 22 January 2012 (MST)

Per Wikipedia:WP:FOOTERS: "See also" is for internal links not integrated into prose. "References" is for works actually cited in the article, whether through Cite.php or otherwise. This leaves "External links" for any WP/Trope links not integrated into prose, as was done in Trousers. --Tepples 06:57, 23 January 2012 (MST)
Ah, ok. That's one part of the MOS I hadn't studied closely enough yet. Also, I keep forgetting that Wikipedia is "external" even though it has an "interwiki" link. Eighty5cacao 11:19, 23 January 2012 (MST)

Google Chrome Frame to be bundled with Google Toolbar for IE[edit]

per post on Google System - Unofficial Google Blog. Is this worth mentioning anywhere? (Probably not, I acknowledge, since IT departments are unlikely to authorize the installation of Google Toolbar...) --Eighty5cacao 21:31, 19 October 2012 (MST)

Flash only inefficient with Apple devices due to lack of Hardware Acceleration[edit]

It seems to be that Hardware Acceleration, which is utilized by the latest versions of flash, are reducing CPU load by anywhere from 5 to 40%. Unfortunately for Apple, Adobe is "considering" enabling hardware acceleration in future updates (http://blog.streamingmedia.com/2010/03/test-results-published-show-flash-is-not-a-cpu-hog-like-apple-claims.html). People think HTML 5 is the future, but the only benefit I see is less bandwidth use and royalty-free codecs. Stuttering, freezing, buffering, slow or unresponsive quality changes.... Will we ever develop something that gives more benefits than downfalls? -Anonymous, 21:27 5 July 2015
