Applet or Flashlet?

Back in April, I asked Which tree does the Applet fall from?. With AS2 so similar to Java, I'm even more inclined to call my work "Flash Applets" rather than "Flashlets" or RIA's. It's still jargon, but it's more descriptive jargon ;-)


I agree with you, although sometimes I used "Flash applets" to distinguish them from "Java applets". But I heard from others who *really* didn't like the term because it reminded them of clientside Java regardless. These days I just tiptoe around those words.... ;-)
