Plugin2, animated gif based branding (white background flashes)
When launching the Jake2 applet, I get the centered animated gif. But the background is a white box on black instead of completely white. What makes it truly annoying is that the background flashhes between black and white. Strobescope style, not so healthy for the eppileptic users ;-)
I then built my own applet with my own animated gif and had the same issue. When I don't center my image, the white flashes go away, BUT the background stays white (I made it #222222) so I'm pretty sure it's not listening ;-)
I'm running Firefox 3 beta 5 and java version "1.6.0_10-beta"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_10-beta-b14)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 11.0-b11, mixed mode, sharing)
Besides this minor issue, both thumbs up for the Plugin2 team!! The war for the next gen web platform is on! :)
PS: The multiple systray icons thingy is also annoying but I understand it will be fixed soon. A good use for the systray could be listing all running Java processes (with their main class name or webpage or window title or something) and a kill button, that way if one misbehaves we can easily destroy it. This would be so much better than guessing which java.exe process to kill in the windows task manager. As a developer I have several netbeans and eclipses and tomcats running and killing the wrong one is just a PITA :)
