It's All Flash Now

from the too-much dept

Macromedia wants Flash to take over the world. They’re getting ready to launch a new product that will make it easier to design entire websites in Flash. While I understand some of the benefits of this, I also see it as pissing off a lot of users who have problems with Flash sites, or dealing with incompatibilities. I think the main problem I have with Flash is that it tends to make people too creative and try to build fancy (and slow to download) animations and other gimmicks into their sites when they’re not at all necessary.
