A dreamweaver list friend of mine, ask me to test a page of his on my IE 5+ on a Windows OS and I learn something very useful. You must have seen and designed some or the other form of liquid (stretchable) design. You would have successfully done liquid table layouts but you must have the itchy feeling that you should also do this with text, so that they become stretchable according to the dimension of the browser.
Now, You can have something like;
width : 50%;
max-height : 12px;
max-width : 4px;
min-height : 10px;
min-width : 2px;
You must have seen RSS feeds of most of the popular blogs using flash interface and you know, it’s slow (I have to say this !) if you want a quickie of most of the blogs, you can visit fullasagoog to view them, read them. You can suggest him some new blog if you see that your favorite is missing.
Many of you might have even seen this but I saw it today. I like this thing. You can do a reverse search, the scrollbar is reversed atleast in IE. The Results are reverse. Check out the Mirrored Google.

I found some referer on my web log from Flashzoom and so I went there to see if I could see my site anywhere being linked. But I could not find one, after searching and roaming around a bit, I saw the ‘periodic table of flash’ where my site ‘Br’ was included in the table.
A tool for Flash, that is what Flash-tools is, where you can find flashmail, flashforum, flashmp3player, flashmysql and yes a flashblog too.
