My thoughts on using flash when developing websites has always been; flash is a useful tool to enhance the look and feel of a website, but use it sparingly. Flash has always had issues that had to be considered when developing websites.
Past issues with using flash:
- Load Time
- Browser Support
Current issues with using flash:
- I-Phone does not support flash
- I-Touch and I-Pad does not support flash
Are the rumors true?
I decided to do some reading. (Articles links below)
Is flash dead in my opinion? Yes and No. Always use html and css to design your website, a website exclusively constructed with flash is in trouble, but the use of flash to enhance a website will be with us for a while longer.
