For the longest time, I’ve thought that Flash was completely evil. It would appear that I’m not the only one. But I’m starting to have second thoughts about the issue. Maybe the problem with Flash is that it has been done badly for various websites (e.g. like this). Core functionality like navigating a website should only be done with HTML. Of course, the insidious Flash intro is also a big no-no. There are a narrow range of applications (e.g. timbuk2 byob) which seems better suited to the richer content that Flash can offer. I guess the richer content is not unlike what the Mozilla folks have tried to do with XUL. IMO, Flash works better because it is supported by more browsers both good and crappy *cough*ie*cough*.
You might be curious about what made me reconsider… [FLASH ALERT!!!]
