Google tries a SearchMash in Flash, but what about ink support?


Google made public an experimental “SearchMash” that’s built with Flash. It’s main focus appears to be to experiment with how search results are displayed and interacted with. Flash gives the dev team a flexible framework to work within–a more expressive framework than let’s say Javascript.

OK, all of this is fine, but what would have been really cool is if the team had integrated ink support on their input frame. They could have done something akin to my SearchTIP. Or if they had gotten really creative they could have included math support, like in the MathTIP.
