6 Places that Flash Does Not Belong

“A couple years ago, I did a website for a large church organization that had dozens of menu items and many pages of content per menu item. They insisted on a Flash site where you never had to use the browser scroll, and at the same time, it should look just like an HTML site (which of course, begs the question, ‘Why are we using Flash?’). Needless to say, they ended up with a very cumbersome website that costs much more than an HTML site, both to build and maintain. Furthermore, visitors complained about the site usability, preferring even a simple text-only site where they could actually get the information they wanted. In general, you’d be surprised how often a visitor will take information accessibility over a great-looking Flash one. If your website’s primary purpose is delivering informational content, avoid Flash.”
