Subject: FLASH: Shockwave plugin arrived with Netscape 4.08
From: d.l.cheseldine

Today I put Netscape Navigator 4.08 on one of our Macs that hadn't
previously had a browser. I was surprised to find that the Flash plugin
was included in the download and have a couple of questions:

1. Is the Flash plugin also "bundled" with an Internet Explorer download?

2. Users only need 1 plugin to play Shockwave Director (.dcr) movies and
Shockwave Flash (.swf) movies, correct? But when the new browser reached
my Shockwave Director pages, it went off to the Macromedia site and did
another download. Can anyone tell me why this happened?

Thanks for any advice
