No Flash Player 9? Too bad!

theapartment.jpg

This is precisely why I strongly dislike Flash Sites.

If you need to have the latest version of Flash Player just to be able to view a site, and you don’t have it installed on your computer, there can only be two outcomes:

A. You download Flash Player 9, install it and reload the page on your browser.

B. You close the tab and forget about it.

Sadly for the apartment, I closed the tab and forgot about them.

Then, I thought about how good an argument for web standards their site would make, and decided to write this post.

I could go on about how Flash works against things like search-engine optimization, but I’m trying to tone down a little on the geek speak today. =)

Well, maybe Flash sites aren’t so bad, after all.
