Flash back-button demo

A while ago I visited www.orange project.com with a beautiful implementation of a flash back-button.
A few weeks later, Jens Franke wrote this very informative article.

Because I like to implement this technique in future Flash-sites, I made a little back-button demo. The example works in Flash 8 and higher.
To communicate between Flash and the browser, I used ExternalInterface, a new Flash 8 feature. Martijn de Visser published a clear example, which I have used as a basis for my demo.

Unfocus History Keeper javascript is used to add browser back button history and deep link support.

Other sites which use the same back-button solution:
