It's Not Flash -It's An Video Streaming Applet - With Java SE 6u10 Effect
Kudos to the German http://www.linux-magazin.de/ for providing (propably un-intentionally) this use case.
And it is VERY fast, it starts streaming immediately when I scroll through it randomly. (but thats maybe the german server)
I recently even surprisingly noticed that applets are there where you would never expect them, e.g "Nvidia Smart Scan" which checks your *hardware* and tells you if there are new driver available. It even works for ATI cards - I still cant believe it ;-)
Or the 3d view of logitech products... also an applet.

It starts very fast here in Amerika too. I didn't have any Java applications running so the JVM had to start up cold. Am using Firefox 3 and Java 6 Update 10.

wow, that is amazing.
I use OSX Leopard 10.5.2 with JDK6 installed. It runs blazing fast on Safari 3.
