A blog post on the role of pixel density when developing mobile apps.
Whereas in the past user interface design would largely be concerned with screen size or display resolution only, now the question of how many pixels make up one inch becomes relevant as well. This measure is called pixel density, and expressed in dpi or ppi values. Nowhere is pixel density as broadly distributed as in the mobile world. A low-end android mobile may have a 180 dpi screen, while a high-end one, like the retina display, will boast up to a 326 dpi screen.
From version 3.6.4 Firefox started to use plugin-container.exe as external container over browser plugins in general and flash player specifically
This to prevent browser crashes in case of plugin crash. The idea is nice, the implementation caused to common plugins instability.
In cases when plugin is "hard-working" (and Flash is good candidate), the communication between browser and plugin-container can be lost. In that cases FF counts till 45 and kills the plugin, sometimes it causes to FF freeze also.
The Israeli Adobe Flash and Flex users group will hold an event on April 25th 10am in Tel Aviv.
Adobe is going to release a "Packager for iPhone" that would enable action-scripts and flash apps to run as native iPhone apps.
