Flash Hall of Shame #14….Cane Communications [Special Award Winner]
So I am trying out Mozilla the open source Internet browser. It’s clean and fast but I haven’t yet allowed the Flash virus to install its Mozilla plug-in. Anyhow I go to Cane Communication’s (a UK PR company) website and it tells me that I MUST install the Flash 6 plug-in to get into their site. Now this is a PR company, probably looking for clients, trying to impress journalists and you can’t get into the site without Flash. Now obviously this is the same for any completely Flash-built sute, but to add further insult to injury on the ‘no flash detected’ page, there’s no contact details, no alternative HTML information. Excellent strategy. Excellent communicators.
