I think you're more likely to get people to turn around and leave for
Top reasons I leave flash-based sites:
1) The Flash doohicky on the main page wastes my time (no, a skip intro
button does not help)
2) The Flash content assaults my senses (i.e. sound or excessive motion)
3) The designer thinks it's "cute" to hide features so I have to dig
around to try to just get basic information
4) The navigation actually moves so I have to chase it down.
I wouldn't think the Flash 9 player would be that big of an issue, since the
most recent version is 10.
Thanks for the response. I have avoided all you speak of. I just want to make sure most users will be able to use the site without too much hassle of installing at startup. Im going for it!
