Perhaps its the most widespread. Its hardly ubiquitous though, and 
will become less so as time passes. I'd say this works in less than 
half of the browsers I regularly use. In fact, of my three main 
computers Flash is installed on 1 of them. I haven't gone to any 
effort to remove it. In a couple of cases, I've gone to considerable 
effort to add it.

What I see in the field doesn't come close to matching what web 
designers think their audience has installed.  I suspect there's a 
huge self-selection effect operating here, where large parts of the 
reading public simply avoid sides that use Flash.
