Pointless Use Of Flash

A few minutes ago, I looked up a local pizza shop’s website to see if they deliver. What a train wreck that site is! First things first, it’s flash only. There is a little animation. Basically, the shop’s name moves up on the screen, then a graphic shows up. I only turned flash on to see how poorly done the site was.

The text is small, and it’s only got a menu for the types of food. The text for the menu is smallish green text on a whitish back-round, with the back-round image blended into that. Pretty poor contrast IMO. I need to use a magnifier to see it.

When you click on something, it again animates with tiny next on a green back-round for the foods in that category. This text I struggle to read with a magnifier. Guess who won’t be getting my business.

It’s really disappointing to see this type of crappy website still around. Especially for a small business where every customer might count, and they are making it harder on them.

Sadly, the site designer, of course, has a link to his site at the bottom. If I were them, I’d delete that link out of embarrassment.
