Macromedia's Flash product is becoming increasingly popular and as
such deserves a category of its own. Flash can be used to create powerful video and
multimedia web site components or even entire websites. Flash has a wide range of
features that allow the creation of rich user interfaces, online advertising, eLearning
courses and enterprise application front-ends. Flash is capable of delivering
exciting multmedia across the internet even on slower low-bandwidth connections.
Flash is built on an architecture that allows downloading of components more quickly than
similar components could be downloaded if they were in standard image formats. If
your objective is to deliver a visually stunning website, then Flash is the technology
that can make it happen!
