I’m working on a project that involves using more corporate Web sites than I would if I weren’t getting paid to do it.
I am stunned by how many of these sites are using Flash for navigation and information and how badly this stuff works with all three of my Mac browsers (Camino, Safari, and Internet Explorer).
It’s sad how much they must have paid for these ugly, broken sites they present to the world.
One of the less-celebrated aspects of the blog phenomenon is how much activity there is in using CSS and simple, standard HTML to create fast, elegant sites that work really well. I’ve got a folder full of beautiful sites that I plan to steal ideas from for my next redesign.
Flash on a Web site is beginning to feel more and more like tailfins on a car.
