Flash uses a plug-in to function but according to statistic more than 98% of the internet users have it installed. This makes Flash very useful for web animations and for showing video on a web site.
The Flash animation below shows the same overview of a dynamic web-site using PHP / MySQL as the picture on the page under the "Development" menu with some simple animation added to make it easier to understand.
This is only a simple example showing how Flash can be applied.
FLASH can be used to show forms and other content without the need to reload the web page. It can even be used together with PHP to show data from a database..
