Zach Braff has finally launched a new site at zachbraff.com which makes you groan as you instantly know that the developers don’t get it.
The site is entirely Flash (view source for the urchin.js and flash crud).
Flash itself isn’t bad, but the site is broken due to how they implement things:
- The page takes a year to load (for a long time it is black)
- It is totally broken on my mobile device where I first tried to look at this
- Instead of the standard RSS button, a floating moving hot air baloon is used instead. Try to right click to save the RSS URL? No can do.
- Silly scrollbars mean that you can’t page down through blog posts
- Silly scrollbars that you don’t even notice in some places as they blend in so much (on the songs)
- Hard to read text
- Lose your right click menus
What do you get for this? You get fun rollovers and whiz bang crud….
Welcome to 1996.
