I have found Flash to be very useful for sharing static graphics as well on the web in a nice raster-free way. It's nice to be able to show resolution-free plots in a web browser without needing a pdf or postscript reader. I use swftools to convert my R-generated pdf files to swf.

@Ryan: I prefer PDF output too, but in the above fire simulation, it's almost impossible for SWF Tools to generate Flash animation from PDF files, because the image() will generate too many shapes in PDF, which SWF Tools cannot afford (65536 shapes at most).

waaaoooooo that's great simulation
