Flash: Not annoying gimmicks, used where it helps to convey the message
Flash: Is it always annoying?
Flash websites of old were indeed annoying, with long pre-loaders, fancy animatics and often with little real content. However, flash is a small clever file than can hold sounds, animations, calculations, effects. The only drawback is the text embedded in flash, including menu buttons are invisible to search engines, so this has to be borne in mind, in the overall visibility concerns of a web site.
