Fails to render Flash using object only

Fireshot fails to detect Flash content which is included using the object tag only. My guess is it looks for the embed tag. However - even though embed is used everywhere - the W3C way to include Flash is an object tag only. Examples here: www.sinosol.com, www.zurabzurabishvili.com.
Fireshot also thinks it found flash when a page contains a java applet using embed, but it fails to render it. Java applets using object only (again this is the W3C way) are ignored completely.

I guess the safer way to detect flash content is to look for either ".swf" or content-type "application/x-shockwave-flash"; if there's a way to capture Java Applets as well it would make Fireshot perfect.

Best regards

P.S. Information on object tag only can be found here: https://joliclic.free.fr/html/object-tag/en

Hello, nice report, thank you.
You're right, I'm looking for embed tags to detect flash. The check is very simple. Should be enhanced I think.
