Finally! Good news!

I hope that BBO switches to HTML5 with speed. Read enough weak excuses here trying to justify the unplugging of good old Windows version and the autoritative favouring for Flash platform, which was and is a security threat for all users.

Never too late to restore Windows version... ;)

I would have thought using Windows was a bigger security threat than using flash :P

We've been working hard on the HTML5 version, and are confident we'll have it out long before Flash dies completely (if you play "Just Play Bridge" or "Bridge 4 Hands" from the home page, these are the earliest examples of it).

Most probably not. The difference is that Windows version could not be "enriched" by rollover advertising. Therefore reason for stopping WV was money making. Sadly we were all told some excuses that it was for technical reasons.

I hope you realize that we're going to have the same advertising in the HTML5 version. It's not at all dependent on Flash.

And if we really wanted to, we could probably have added the same advertising to the Windows version. We just didn't bother, because we're trying to phase it out.
