The Future of Flash as a rich client

The Future of Flash as a rich client. Mike Chambers has created … an example of the Flash MX DataGrid control. It's a great example of the richness of the client environment created with Flash MX. We're now reaching the richness of the traditional Mac/Win desktop in terms of user interface components.

I know the DataGrid is one of those components that *everyone* needs in an Internet application — it facilitates easy structured viewing/browsing/editing of tabular data; it will be interesting to see how developers extend and enhance it with custom Cell Renderers to provide really powerful data views and manipulation. — Jeremy Allaire, author of Cold Fusion, CTO Macromedia.

I intend to learn Flash over the next few months. It looks like this (or something similar) is going to be very important in the future.  [PHP Everywhere]
