Jacob Neilson: Flash: 99% Bad
My $0.02: Flash is 100% bad for Web. Don't do it.
Macromedia Flash is a cool technology. I know and use Flash for business, but oppose
creation of Flash content for the web for the following reasons.
Requires a plug-in. If you are going to install software on the client's machine,
may I recommend Microsoft Windows native applications (also known as fat-clients)?
Anybody who recommends creation of Flash applications has not developed complex
software, and does not understand the software life-cycle. Maintaining
and changing a Flash project incrementally is extremely painful or not possible.
Short life-span of content created with Flash.
Save Your Eyes
To save the strain on your eyes follow these two steps, and your eyes will thank me for rest of your life.
- On MSIE, go to Tools Internet Options Advanced Multimedia and uncheck the Play Animations checkbox, and then Click on OK.
- Click on your Windows Start button, Search Search Files or Folders and type swflash32.ocx and click on Search Now. If the system finds the file, just delete it. If you have trouble, close the browser and delete it.
By taking these two simple steps you will get rid of all the annoying flashing (and Flash) banners.
If the choice is between your eyes and stupid, meaningless, commerical animations, which one would you chose?
