Google & Flash : A Torrid Affair

I was playing with Google Analytics and I noticed that Google has decided to bed down with Flash yet again. A couple of months ago, Google took the plunge and switched over to Flash to deliver video. You can’t fault Google for the decision. It’s pretty slick stuff.
You have to think Google is just foaming at the mouth as we all recklessly head towards the “rich web as a platform” path. If you dig around Analytics with its visual charts and maps, you can quickly see that it would have been a nightmare to implement in AJAX. Good for Adobe. Potentially uncomfortable for the likes of Google.
