Is flash a widely used technology?
Flash v/s HTML ......

For the top 10 sites close to 40% of websites contain some Flash element and it increases in the top 10 e-Commerce up to 90% of websites.

For eCommerce sites only 2 of the 10 had a high rate of occupancy Flash but in no case are 100% Flash sites and only 1 of the 10 sites was 100% HTML eCommerce.

Where did you get your figures? I'm skeptical that Flash is that common on the most popular sites.

Flash is indeed widely used, and it's also widely despised. Many users find it annoying. I leave sites quickly once they start throwing animation at me.

Why would you type the web address like that? It makes it impossible to copy & paste -- much less to click.

Here's what the article actually says:

In the top 10 sites Flash is only used as an advertising tool or to display videos. There were no interactive component, menu, content management, photo gallery, etc. using Flash.

As I suspected.

As the above mentioned website deals in web design & development along with SEO Services , I thought posting the link directly won't be a good idea...chances are it might get removed......

If a mod doesn't like a link s/he's going to remove it whether it's obfuscated or not.

Just as FYI, it's better to use an actual regular link rather than obfuscation. I've linked up the URL for usability.
