All purely Flash websites are a bit ick, they effectively disable right click menus which cripples tabbed browsing along with other things often accessed that way, and they tend to require huge amounts of bandwidth which they don't really use in a way that presents the information any more efficiently or clearly than a site that's just linked together with old fashioned HTML menus. Even asthetically pleasing sites suffer from the nature of the beast unfourtunately.

I've become so tab dependant that I get upset when I don't get to tab certain things that I want to...eh heh heh.

Some flash websites are really nice. The T2 site comes to mind.

You mean the one that makes me wait through not one but two loading progress bars (for about a minute combined time) before showing me any kind of information at all?

After that, I don't care how good the site looks - I don't want to look at it anymore!

XD I'm patient and I like good aesthetics.

Although waiting a minute probably isn't necessarily that patient. Just less impatient XD

That's why I like either tabs or opening new browsers to wait for the others to load. But then con of that is that I open way too many browsers from the page I am reading from.

I'm more of a want what I came for type person. If I can't get the ketchup out of a supposedly ez squeez bottle like I can out of simple standard squeeze ketchup bottle, than I don't want it...as much. I'm also tolerant. Still, I do get annoyed, but I put up with it as best I can.

I just can't stand when a link breaks on me when it's waiting for some complicated thingy to load. It takes me back to the days of waiting endlessly for a page that might or might not load. That was also on dialup XD. And that old netscape browser. Really does bring me back X)
