Cool Flash Websites: Top 10 from DesignWebKit
Flash will never stop surprising us with the widest opportunities it opens for web developers. With each year the technology becomes more and more advanced, and web designers keep pleasing us with new Flash masterpieces. I can hardly imagine something more impressive than an interactive Flash website with its creative menus, stunning galleries, intuitive navigation and unusual design ideas.
There are a great number of stunning Flash websites all over the web. In addition to a visually attractive layout, a website designed by a professional is functionally correct and loads in a few seconds. Such a website will always be popular among visitors; it will be included in round-ups, mentioned by website award projects, and so on.
We also thought about compiling our own rating of most attractive Flash websites. So, please meet the Top 10 Flash Websites from DesignWebKit Blog!

And finally the 1st place! We will give it to a breathtaking Flash website of the best Greek mushroom restaurant Biliouris. The depth of this Flash masterpiece is really wonderful. To tell the truth, it is hard to imagine something more impressive! The panoramic view creates an impression as if you are really in the restaurant, walking around. You will see a lot of other effects and technologies implemented, in addition to the panoramic view.
