I could not agree more

24 Jun06

I could not agree more with Ryan Stewart - please do not use Flex to build web sites. Having used Flex a bit now, I see that it can be done easily and that someone will probably do it since the components look so good on screen. I’ll definetly be playing with AS3 and the new Flash Player 9 capabilities (using Flex for coding), but I certainly hope nobody wish to build websites using the application components in Flex.

    I agree. I think that flex should be used for what it is meant, that is for applications, not for full web-sites.

    On the other hand, if a site uses a completely different skin, you might not even notice that it’s made with Flex. I wouldn’t recommend it, though. You’d be better off using lighter-weight components to save on load times.
