"Flashy" Flickr Uploadr (2008) vs. Basic Flickr Uploadr (form-based)

We upgraded the Flickr Web-based Upload experience in 2008 to be an HTML/Flash hybrid.

 

Flash was used (invisibly) for the file transport layer, and all of the UI is HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

 

Prior to 2008, we had a simple HTML form-based uploadr that would allow up to six files to be uploaded at once.

 

This is a screenshot for a blog post about a new uploader for 2012. Details here:
