Flash only websites are a bad idea.

Learn from the past...


Back in the 1990's, Flash only websites became a big thing for a while, then people realized that it was a bad idea and the web returned to traditional HTML and CSS based websites. Let's not make the same mistake.

My top four reasons for not creating a Flash only website:

1. Limited search engine visibility.

2. Harder to update because you have to crack open Flash source files.

3. Harder to find Flash developers/designers than it is HTML/CSS nerds.

4. Apple's iPhone and iPad can't see Flash.

Another fact that should make you reconsider Flash only sites, is that Apple is now in open warfare against Flash, where they will not let Flash work on the very popular iPhones and iPads. That means that a Flash only website cannot be seen by millions of iPhone and iPad users.

If you currently have a Flash only website, contact us so we can show you the advantages of having it redesigned in HTML and CSS.
