Enough with Flash Intros

Filed under category: Website Design

most people skip flash intros in website design

After much research and talking with website users, it has been determined by us and a lot of other people that big, elaborate flash intros are a big waste of time and space. Not only do flash intros take long to load and bog down the website server, they also are hardly ever looked at all the way through. Most oftentimes, people click on the "skip intro" button. I know I do.

Flash intros have become nothing more than a "Hey, look at what I can do with flash" sort of deal. 99 times out of 100, a user just wants to log onto the website so they can get the information they came for in the first place. Nobody has the time or the patience to sit through a 30 second flash intro in order to get the information they want.

Stay away from flash intros or people are going to stay away from your site. You've been warned.
