Flash is a software created by Macromedia, the same company that produces Dreamweaver.

Flash allows to compress vectorial animations and sound to create a graphical interface.

The user must install on his computer a player available for free. The player will display the Flash files based on the speed of the Internet connection.

Flash uses a lot of bandwidth and can slow down the downloading process. Old modems and computers are not strong enough to fully enjoy Flash.

Flash is therefore not recommended for web sites targeting a large audience.

Flash is used for:

  • Graphical interface
  • Game
  • Cartoon

The animation is not available and so cannot be seen if :

  • The player is not installed on the user’s computer
  • The internet connection is not fast enough
    Users need a broadband connection
  • The computer is too old
