This keeps happening to me on Microsoft sites, and it really bugs me…
- I go to view a product on one of our sites, Xbox.com and Zune.net most recently
- I click on some image to see a larger view…
- I right-click on the image with the intent of saving it to my machine, only to get the standard Flash context menu (Zoom, etc…)
I get the appeal of Flash, I really do… but these pages are just a gallery of images with a back and next button. There is no smooth animation between images, the images aren’t interactive or animated, this is just 3-10 jpeg images that I can move between. By using Flash, I lose the ability to interact with these images in the way that HTML would have provided, and I can’t see what I’ve gained!
