Default Re: I hate Flash

I agree with superklye. Flash is for presentation, not UI. Its good for ads etc, but you shouldn't build a whole website in it... Unless its a promotional website for a movie or something, in which case the site is basically just one big ad anyway. Otherwise Flash is bad because it breaks browser accessibility features and site state (bookmarks, back button etc).

People who design whole sites in Flash are usually showing off, to themselves, their bosses, or clients. But they aren't thinking about the end user.
