Flash arose as a movement in a very short short time and then withdraw silently. I remember last time almost every page must have a Flash Intro, Flash Banner or at least have a little Flash Navigation in sites. Orders of the customers also have a bit of Flash, they think that it's the standards of a modern site.

So why Flash is retreating so fast like that? here are 8 reasons you should not design the site entirely in Flash. In fact Flash is irreplaceable if you want to do an animation clip, ecard, online games and banner ads. It superior to GIF format for smoother motion and a lot better capacity. But if bringing Flash to do a complete website, especially the e-commerce site, it is the biggest mistake you can make when doing site. Someone tells you to do web pages with Flash it new Pro, smile and walk before you become a victim of these things.

Flash is very heavy when loading
With web crushing people like you and me, with Dial Up internet access these days is hard to accept. But the majority of users with average computer configuration, with the Internet, the average speed is a very flash website. When you surf the web to find the information you are interested in the music Intro narrowed to the minutes it takes to load? Which, when loaded, where the whole is something not related to the information you need.

Making a Flash page takes time, effort and money
Must recognize that a Flash page takes time, effort and money. With a normal static website you have to pay a few million. But with a site made with Flash, you can pay many times and had to wait a long time to complete. However, if you want to change something, you have to pay extra if you do not know anything about Flash. For example, after this you do not want the navigation bar on the right where it left hand, you definitely have to spend a few million to repair.

Depending on the browser plugin
This is the era of technology and more and more people surf the web using mobile devices. If they visit your site they will be like? only the content they see is "You need Adobe Flash Player to view this content." Moreover only the subjects of regular network knows Install Plugin, how to install how. For example, your parents are given a website address on a certain product, want to go online to see if it is. But not browser plugin, then how? how many percent your parents know how to install the browser plugin? Why do you have to depend on a third party to be able to interact with your readers?

Are not search engine friendly
This is a particular point of the Flash page, because the content of the page is an image and video. The search engines at the present time can not know the contents of it on something and therefore can not index sites. A website SEO failure is 50% failure in every way.

Not user friendly
With a normal web page, which can link to any site on the web as long as it exists on the server. For example, if you want to ask a certain question in the FAQs section, which can get accurate link to take questions and to the need. But with Flash, you must explain to the client such as: At home, looking to the left hand corner there is a link -> click on it -> then scroll down about 3/4 of the screen 6th paragraph - > click on ... And finally you also have no way Bookmark your favorite pages.

Content on the page do not copy
Because most of the text on the page is an image so you can not copy. For example, you have to quote a part of it, the only thing is that you have to type the whole. You have no way to "black out" at all.

Can not printing
As well as point of view, because Flash is an image, so if your customers want to print the address of the company or product information, they give up because did not know what to do.

Always have to wait for any task
A Flash-heavy pages, then any task you want to do is to wait a few seconds or tens of seconds depending on the speed of your network. Want to see some pricing information and delivery location must .. 23% .. 34% ... 56% ... 78% .. 86% ...

Conclusion
There are many ways to make your website stand out other sites. But Flash is not a way. You keep in mind that your new website content all decisions, not its form. Of course these two points if harmony will complement each other. But a page weighs on the present stage and forget the most essential needs of the user, failure is very easy to understand. However, Flash is also not as bad as you think. It is the greatest tool for creating animations, online games, movie ... but it is a sinner if used to make web pages. Hope this article is useful to you.

Totally agree with you. Flash websites are history in Internet world! Flesh is only great to make online games and animations, and that's it. But unfortunately even they are not supported in android world..

You should use compressed images for the website, so you can reduce the loading time of your website.
