How Cool Web Design Leads to Shareability Failure

Profile photo of ImPretty Submitted by ImPretty January 29, 2014 Website: seo2.0.onreact.com

More than 10 years ago I wanted to become a so called Flash developer. I enrolled at a state funded six month long course to learn use Flash to build websites with animated effects. I failed. During this half a year I’ve learned that Flash was already way to complex to make sense as a website building tool. You know, back then

all the “cool websites” were using Flash with its amazing effects.

Web standards killed the flashy celebrity

A decade ago CSS only sites were still a new trend and it was far less endearing. They couldn’t even display custom fonts yet (font replacement for headlines wasn’t even born yet). Still I couldn’t believe that Flash was the way to go. It didn’t make sense.
