Advantages and disadvantages of flash based websites

  1. 1. Advantages And Disadvantages Of Flash Based Websites www.theserviceoption.com/guru
  2. 2. In the past few years, people have been obsessed with flashed-based sites coupled with the additions of more features into flash by macromedia (the major flash design company).
  3. 3. Hence, one can only predict an upward trend of flash sites on the internet.
  4. 4. However, there have been arguments over the use of flash-based sites, with many of the opinion that they are simply unnecessary.
  5. 5. So let me take you through the good and the bad of flash-based sites.
  6. 6. The good:
  7. 7. 1) Effective communication. The action script of flash creates a wide range of options. Programmers and designers have used flash to create feedback forms, attractive flashed- based games and several other features. This new mode of communication will make visitors to yearn for more.
  8. 8. 2) Cross-browser compatibility With flash, you won’t have to lose sleep over how a particular css code opens-up in internet browser, Firefox or opera. With site elements properly positioned in flash, these elements will always appear as they are so far the user has installed flash player on his/her pc
  9. 9. 3) Improved appearance through animation The animating features of flash can be used to put across a message in a better organized way. Flash is vector-based and thus has a small file size which makes it a better option for animation than real movie files that are raster based and thus larger in size.
  10. 10. The bad and the ugly:
  11. 11. 1) The player itself To view flash movies, people have to download and install the flash player just to view your site, an action not many people will be willing to perform. This will automatically reduce the number of visitors to your site. Also, additional work is required by you in re- directing visitors who are yet to install flash to the flash download page
  12. 12. 2) Low site ranking Most search engines are unable to index flash content. Your site will rank low in site engines thus reducing traffic to your site. Most search engines are unable to index flash content. Your site will rank low in site engines thus reducing traffic to your site.
  13. 13. 3) Increased loading time Most search engines are unable to index flash content. Your site will rank low in site engines thus reducing traffic to your site. Visitors as well as users will have to wait far more than usual to access a flash based site and some might just lose their patience and head for another site. It is only when you need the interactivity and motion that comes with flash that you should absolutely consider using it.
  14. 14. If not, use pure text to display simple, text and graphical information. You can as well use a combination of flash and html.
