Javascript Vs Flash, Javascript Pro and Cons, Mobile Website Development Austin - Clarity Ventures



javascript versus flash animation

Upon choosing a custom development company, many companies decide to take their website to the next level by adding a conservative amount of Flash or jQuery animation. Clarity Ventures is familiar with both of these technologies, and can help your website integrate either one. As you speak with your developer, consider what your website is looking for so that you can have a better understanding of what to ask from your designer.

Flash Integration Pros and Cons

Flash provides a number of excellent features, including 3D capabilities, a consistent appearance, extensive font options, and support of vector artwork.

It can also be integrated with a variety of third-party commercial tools, which enhances the overall user experience of a page using Flash. However, it’s not compatible with all browsers, and can function especially poorly on mobile devices. It also tends to have a larger file size, which can affect your website’s loading time.

Javascript Integration Pros and Cons

Javascript uses a much smaller file size than Flash, which leads to a speedier website loading time and a better user experience. It is also compatible with most browsers and mobile devices, an increasingly important feature in today’s mobile society. Javascript is a better program for adding interactivity within a website, and like Flash, it is compatible with powerful third-party programs. However, its 3D features are limited, and some of its more complex features do not work as quickly or as well as Flash.

Both Javascript and Flash have their place in web design. Because of its compatibility with mobile browsers and its user-friendly load time, Clarity developers tend to favor Javascript.

Which Design Technology is Right for Your Website?

Both Javascript and Flash have their place in web design. Because of its compatibility with mobile browsers and its user-friendly load time, Clarity developers tend to favor Javascript. However, if your website currently uses Flash or requires it, we are comfortable working with it. Speak to a Clarity consultant if you still have questions about which technology to use for your website.
