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.
- 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.
- Large File size:
It makes your site heavy & increases the loading time.
- Flash is not iOS friendly:
Try loading flash content on your iPhone/iPad browser and it will give you an error.
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.
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.”
