The end of April was marked by another wave of polemics and heated disputes around Flash. This controversy has been primarily caused by “Thoughts on Flash” by Steve Jobs. And again Flash supporters defend this technology praising its advantages and possibilities, whereas their opponents find more and more its weak points.
People tend to associate Flash content with two things: video and games. But it’s far from being right, as Flash has a great potential and provides a bunch of opportunities to create appealing portfolios, commercial and promotional websites, educational websites and even online stores.
