I particularly liked this section on the back button and bookmarking [flazoom.com]:
Create single-page content divisions
The best way to support the browser level navigation tools (the forward and back buttons) is to separate Macromedia Flash movies into logical sections and place them on individual HTML pages. When you deliver content in this manner, users are also able to bookmark specific Macromedia content using their browser bookmark feature.
And this site practices what it preaches. Extremely fast, intuitive, highly usable -- and light on the animation.
All I'm wondering now is what is it about this page that couldn't be done another way? At this level of minimilization, couldn't the animations be carried out another way, animated gif's, etc.?
Just curious. Amazingly clear site, though. Some serious thought went into this one. Thanks for the link.
The animation at the top weighs in at 4.2K....you might be hard pressed to create an anim gif at that size around that weight. Besides it would take all of 5 mins to create that in Flash.
What you don't see very much of yet is the interaction between Flash and scripts in forms. This would be a great area to explore.
