What do you guys think about Flash?

Unread post by Jason » Sun May 23, 2010 2:00 pm

Hey all,

What do you guys think about Flash used in websites? I could develop a chat room that uses Flash/Flex very easily and it is something I would like to add to the website. I would never develop the website using completely flash, hell no, but some parts could be done better with flash that what is possible with standard web technologies. Do you guys even care? :lol: Let me know!

Good for videos .. anything else like navigation/buttons/design etc slows it to much down for anything.. and yes .. flash is in my eyes nothing else like an big advertise program

In my eyes any site-feature that needs additional software like flash / java .. is an step back .. but in these times it seems to be more than normal to have both installed ... even it means an higher risk for infections

Why do you consider it to be a step back? Plug-ins such as Flash, Java and newly Silverlight are suppose to offer new features that are currently not available in standard web technologies. I don't think it is true or fair to say that plug-ins offer a higher rick of infection.

Well in my point of view an site has to work even with an real old system.. just html ... anything else like java flash etc witch you might have to install speratly means to slow it more down for old systems and if you don't be always up-to-date and browse porn websites (not that I would do that) you might be infected soon ..  :mrgreen:
