flash is currently supported in: linux, mac, solaris and win95/98/nt. for
MOST webshops, that's enough, considering that rendering a non-flash
compatible version of a page is fairly uncomplicated.
flash (and generator, used to create flash movies on the fly) is becoming
alot more popular on the internet and it would be nice if the links could be
indexed. of course, using generator on the server side, indexing is fairly
easy...but then it also requres an external database.
