Flash animations are films created by animation software such as Adobe Flash. These types of animations are saved in the .SWF file format. Flash animations are found in various web pages, and can be fast forwarded using a bookmarklet. A bookmarklet is an application stored as a URL in the bookmark bar of a web browser. When a bookmarklet is clicked, it performs a specified function, and can be used to fast forward a flash animation.
Go to www.squarefree.com/bookmarklets/flash.html.
Click and drag the “fast-forward” button from the web page to the bookmarks bar of your web browser. Any Mozilla-based web browser, and Internet Explorer, will support this bookmarklet. A bookmarklet button will now appear on your web browser.
Go to the website with the flash animation you wish to fast forward.
Play the flash animation and press the bookmarklet “Fast-forward” button you created in the bookmarks bar.
