Web without Flash! Accessible, Responsive & more..

If I got a penny for every-time I had to explain my friends about how jQuery & HTML5 have replaced flash in web-design, I sure would be a millionnaire!

“Flash animation” is a buzz word that a majority of our clients use to describe animation, sliders, and generally any moving part on their website. Even though a better solution could be built using jQuery & HTML5, the customer knows it only to be “Flash”, and as such, only asks for Flash.

…..But technology changes in a flash, gone are the days when Apple & Blackberry were just fruits.

  1. Flash is not SEO friendly:
    Googlebots do not index pages with Flash content. So if your website homepage has flash, it is less likely to be indexed by Google.
  2. Large File size:
    It makes your site heavy & increases the loading time.
  3. Flash is not iOS friendly:
    Try loading flash content on your iPhone/iPad browser and it will give you an error.
  4. Security:
    Flash does not guarantee data integrity. You may loose all your vital data in Flash of a second 🙂

21st Century is revolutionised by UI/UX, and we are empowering it with jQuery, CSS3 and HTML5.

Simply because jQuery does what it says! Write less, Do more.

Apart from being SEO Friendly, iOS compatible and easily scalable on low bandwidth internet, it offers a lot more to enhance your websites performance and looks. You can create high-end responsive designs with great interactivity and amazing speed.

Our previous company website was believed to be Flash driven; We indeed like giving people pleasant & innovative surprises. Here is demo of our previous design, incase you happen to miss out:

“…the mobile era is about low power devices, touch interfaces and open web standards – all areas where Flash falls short.”

  1. Hey, nice explanation.
    Thank god, I recorded old rtcamp site’s UI.

    But most of the time the sentence “Write less, Do more” misleads developers. Writing less code doesn’t mean less execution cycles, specially when your 2 lines of code depends on other library code (of thousands of lines). If you can achieve same functionality with basic JS code, then there is no need of any JS library. Less code doesn’t mean less execution cycles and faster performance.

    • Thanks for recording it! 🙂

      “Write less, Do more” doesn’t misleads developers. If you use jQuery, then you (as a developer) can do more in same amount of time.
      Increase in CPU cycles, increases work of CPU (marginally) but stil reduces Developer’s workload significantly.

      Writing-less code helps in ongoing maintenance also. If we code 2 lines only, we need to maintain 2 lines only! If we code 100 lines, we need to maintain that much… 😉
