WordPress in Flash

Wordpress in Flash

Number Eight Wired is a rather interesting experiment(?) – it adopts the very typical WordPress blog style, but implements it in Flash instead of the more typical CSS. You do get some bells-and-whistles that comes with Flash ( ability/control in animations and effects particularly) – the site do feel slick and polished. And you can use your favorite unique fonts without worrying that your viewer not having it (unlike in standard webpages).

For all the polish though, you’d (usually) have to sacrifice the much taken-for-granted things in webpages: ability to right click, deep-link to specific pages, save images off the web, etc (Note: these are in fact do-able even with Flash contents – it’s just that they’re not common).

Which’d you prefer? Style vs usability (or is this actually a false dichotomy)?
