I was recently posed with a question on how to run Adobe Flash files
in the browser. As far as I know, you can write a simple HTML page
to embed the Flash file (
SWF) in a page and load in the
I also recall that any decent browser would be able to load the SWF
file as-is without having to do anything extra.
However, loading the SWF file in Chrome on Linux does not work; loading the file causes Chrome to prompt the user to download it - definitely not the reaction I was hoping from the browser. Trying to solve this problem lead to learn a new thing about MIME types in Linux.
