Google Moves Toward Adobe Flex
The SearchMash Web site has a new look
This Web site is operated by Google. Just enter the word(s) and the search begins. Let’s do it together. Type Leonard Cohen and press Enter. It’ll bring you to a page with the relevant links to this great Canadian song writer and singer.
Click on the tab Video, and you’ll see a number of Cohen’s videos without any Web page refreshes. Move the mouse over these thumbnail images, read the tooltips and find the song “Dance me to the end of love.” Click on it, and you’ll see a YouTube player on the right (no page refreshes). Put on your head phones and enjoy. If you haven’t heard his music yet I envy you, cause I already did.
So why this new Google Web site important? You may not know, but for many years Google was a three-language company: Java, C++ and Python. The fact that they are starting to use Flex is important not because it’s more proof that Flex is a solid technology for RIA, yada, yada, yada. What’s really important is that this can serve as a signal to a myriad of small software vendors that will now be inspired to work on what will possibly become the next killer application in Flex and maybe, just maybe, will get these small vendors on Google’s radar.
