Talking about which, how do you check what version of flash you have in different browsers? I know I can write 'about:plugins' in the address bar in Opera and Moz browsers, but Opera doesn't list the version number. I have no idea how to find out in IE. mellow.gif

That's handy even if "In some cases the version number reported in the movie above may not match the version of the installed Flash Player". But there ought to be a way to tell directly. They should have a gadget for that, like Java has.
