Even if usability evangelists often consider Flash to be a usability nightmare, used properly, Flash can provide users with a rich and interactive interface which would be impossible if not. Today Flash is the de-facto standard for interactive elements on the Web as most users install Flash plug-in by default. And in fact, there are many paths creative designers can take to make a more interactive and user-friendly interface.
Searching for ‘flash tutorials’ via Google & Co. won’t provide you with the consequences you expect. Not that you won’t find any significant consequences, on the contrary — you will be directed to a large number of Flash repositories which offer everything: sometimes helpful, but frequently not. Besides, browsing through these repositories isn’t that much fun — as you sometimes need to figure out whether a link you see is a hidden AdSense-block or the actual tutorial. And it’s really hard to find something “refreshing” and new simply using some standard keywords.
