Ok so heres my opinion on flash: I think the only time its acceptable to use flash is if it is for a portfolio, with a few other exceptions. If you're a company using flash, especially if the website is their main source of contact with the business, then flash can greatly ruin a users experience. Not every computer can handle flash, and you can't even guarantee the end user will have flash installed or even know what flash is. If you're going to offer a flash website, at least offer an alternative HTML site. I know for me, I never use flash unless its for a banner or small parts of the site and I can make my sites look just as clean as a flash site without all the loading and slowness. I know from experience that flash is very confusing for some people and an HTML site can provide the same esthetically pleasing design and a flash site can, without the lag brought with animation What do you guys think? Is flash out played and unprofessional for a business?
