Ubiquity for flash gamers

I love Ubiquity for many reasons, but for now I am applying it to flash games.

I like playing flash games. There are so many to choose from, they are small, accessible and often extremely innovative. Unfortunately, often they are played on a small area of a window on screen that is increasingly being eaten up by buttons and bars.

Internet Explorer and Firefox have an option to get rid of all of the bars with full screen mode, keyboard-shortcut: f11. But this still gives the player a small flash area on a big window. This is where Ubiquity comes in.

Ubiquity has a function called "zoom". Yes, other bars and extensions have zoom functions too, but typically they only change the size of text. Not very useful when playing flash games. Ubiquity zoom is different.

Ubiquity zoom will zoom in on an entire page. Even more so, it zooms in on the Firefox window. This makes buttons, bars, text and entire pages bigger. The net effect when used in full screen mode is a flash game that is virtually full screen increasing playability.

To install it you will need to login. You can use the following:

password: ubiquity
