I dont know of any details but if i was in a similar position i would just do a bit of my own research by going to some kind of sirectory and selecting 100 random sites and make a note of wether they use flash or not.
(I really like the way adobe deals with it's customers sometimes :-) )
I think there are some very interessting side-tracks to your question.
What about sites that use flash-banners/adds, do you count them?
What about sites that offers alternative content (transparently) for users without (the right version of) flash?
How dou you count/weight sites at all (one domain one site, what about subsites or is yahoo and my sons homepage equally weighted).
Im putting those questions here, not because I have answers (sorry) but I really thing that your question is very interessting and I would be very interessted how you solve the thing.
Please keep us informed.
Results for <body 1,380,000,000
Results for .swf 96,600,000
But even if so, the number of less than 1% seems quite low considering the amount of flash ads out there...
I would count all aspects of flash be it a full site or just a banner.
By site i would mean a domain or sub-domain which hosts a live website. For instance I would count MySpace as one site, even though there are around 60-80Million unique pages (the majority of which contain flash).
Although the results will be be a guesstimate this way, that is all I require. To get a true figure would takes months possibly years of research!
Also that work around is the total number of pages in Google im intersted in sites, but thanks for your thoughts, they are appreciated
