Just Say No To Flash

Yet one more example of the inherent security issues brought about by embedded tech in your browser like Flash and JAVA.

This is why noscript continues to gain in popularity. This is why browsers within a couple years will start to package the ability to block embedded objects like flash, java, and even javascript.

DO NOT RELY ON THESE TECHNOLOGIES! If users are blocking these objects, such as Flash, and your whole web page is built in Flash, they will never see your website and you will lose customers!

Flash, Java, Javascript, etc.. these are technologies to be used to ENHANCE your website, but by no means should access to core functionality of your website rely on such technologies.

The only thing you should ever need to access EVERY CORE/CRITICAL piece of your website is a program that can translate HTML. The user who operates with Lynx should be able to use your website in all the key ways that someone with Opera 9 and nothing blocked (such as Flash) can use your website.

If you don’t you lose customers.

It’s that simple.
