Will it hurt my uncle business if he uses flash for the site?

0 votes
Its a restaurant. I'm trying to convince him its a bad idea. I told him i was looking for a chinese restaurant with Google local search and found one but it was using flash so i went back and picked the one i could view to read the menu. So the one with flash lost my business. He said most phones have Flash, just not iPhone. I don't think he right, is he? I don't even think Android has it buts it coming i heard. Is there any data i could show him to convince him Flash is bad for his site? Do you have any input on this?

It's changing and when you say most phones are flash enabled they are not. It's the browser in which you use to view a website needs to have the flash plugin installed and compatible to the browser or some browsers now have it built in.  Just look in the app store.

I don't like installing a plugin just to view a website with all the non-sense malware that is out. If I were a pontential client and visit your site and I have to add something to view the site , I will move on and go elsewhere.

Flash is out the door , but great for video streaming and has been fastastic since Macromedia created it.

But anyway for a personal or business website in my opinion use html 5 and css 3 (Standard now) . All updated browsers see this , it's responsive and will adapt to any device screens size and very interactive. And best of all it's amazingly fast.

If its a personal website or even business. I strongly suggest to make this easier use a content mamangement system. WORDPRESS or Joomla are my two favorites and free in a sense. It's much easier and reliable and so far IOS and Droid pull the website perfectly.

I know this is old and I am sorry . I'm just playing with scripts and adding content. I know people will agree with me on this.

But you are correct in my opinion.
