You may often see some cool animations or graphics across the web. When you right click and try to save it, you couldn't. They are flash files. So what is the solution. Of course there are number of browser addons and softwares out there. But I think this is a much better trick to download the swf.
- First open the source of the web page where the flash file you want to download is located (Ctrl + U in Firefox).
- Now press Ctrl + F.
- Type .swf
- And thats it, you got the file name of the flash swf file.
- Now all you have to do is copy the file name and paste them right after the url of the webpage.
- The url must not include the file name or any parameter of the web page. For eg:- If you have a swf file flash.swf in the url
http://www.example.com/php-example/index.php?page=10 then you may have to clear everything after http://www.example.com/php-example/ and add flash.swf
- Now the final url to download the swf looks like http://www.example.com/php-example/flash.swf
- Now run this url. Select File->Save Page as
- Thats it, you are done!!!
- This method will not work where the flash file is driven from an external data souce like xml.

At the same time Adobe is launching Acrobat.com, it is releasing Acrobat 9—a major upgrade to one of its anchor desktop apps. the big news here is that for the first time, Adobe’s PDF-creating desktop software will supports Flash. So people can now create documents with embedded Flash movies from YouTube, or developers can design entire new skins for electronic documents using Adobe’s Flex framework—the same programming tool they use to create Web applications.
PDF documents made with Acrobat 9 also support collaboration among multiple authors and reviewers over the Internet, making them connected documents. Best of all, they no longer take forever to load. The next step is for Adobe to make it easy to turn any PDF into a Web page, and vice versa.
This is great
Literally, you can apply this trick on any solid background color (as long your gradient color is the same as your background color).
Pattern / Texture
You can also apply this trick with a tile background image. Look, here is an example of zebra pattern. So, be creative!
All you have to do is
- Type in your text
- Copy the code at top
- Paste them anywhere below head tag.
- Now copy the code found in the text area below the text font you want
- And paste it in you site anywhere below body tag where you want them to appear.
