As the merger between Macromedia and Adobe continues the transition advances. If you try to go to macromedia.com you will now be redirected to Adobe.com. For the past months there has been no image of the Shockwave plug-in on the front page of MM (or Adobe), but the logo has returned to the front page on the lower left side. Although not featured in the upper left with Flash and Acrobat Reader, it is at least an image now!
Now, what exactly will this do to all the links various companies have to the Shockave plug-in? In recent weeks the reliability of the download of the players on the site have been a bit flaky. Will the new redirects solve these problems. For my morning project I’ll be checking out of few of the new redirects, and seeing where to point users for the Shockwave download.
