FlashObject Is Now SWFObject

After some back and forth with Adobe, Geoff Sterns has renamed his popular FlashObject detection script for embedding Flash content in a standards safe and Eolas safe manner to SWFObject.

Yes I think the whole thing is silly. Yes I think the change will cause confusion just at the time when the most new users might be looking for such a solution due to the recent IE6 changes. Yes I think Adobe should be careful about backlash and general bad will among the people that embrace their tools the most. But since Geoff I generally accepting of the changes there’s no reason not to follow his lead.

So FlashObject is dead1, long live SWFObject.

1 or will be when Geoff finishes updating the docs.
