Do you know why I hate flash websites? BECAUSE THEY ALWAYS LOAD FOR AGES! Photos in the photo galleries, portfolio of design studios – they all make me feel mad when I have to wait 15 seconds while the website is loading, then 5 seconds when the pop-ups with the texts are loading and then about 2-5 seconds for every image in portfolio! No, that’s not because I have slow connection that is because most of the flash websites are heavy and awful. Even when there’s some interesting animation it suddenly stops and then moves and then stops again… do you know what I mean?
Hey people, if you make something in flash make sure it’s fast. It took me several weeks and hundreds of various flash websites to prepare the small collection of websites you can see below. They are simply perfect so be sure to check them and I also described in brief what’s so great about them.В Don’t let your website visitor leave just because you think that all flash websites work slow, the experience is completely different with the websites below.
I was amazed how quickly the website loads and it never showed any type of the preloader or anything when playing around. It’s a great interactive thing, drag the “tree” with your mouse up and down to see different characters, you can also rotate it with the mouse. Choose a book from the small pop-up of the character and you’ll be taken to a separate small charming website! Don’t forget to use your mouse there as well, you can rotate every scene. This is a real piece of flash art and papervision!
Google Mail has been my favorite mailbox one for the last 6 years. Mostly because it was pretty intriguing at the very beginning that you couldn’t register but should have been invited only and because it was the first provider offering the hugest space in you maibox for free and this space is constantly growing. I liked the fact that you don’t have to delete the old messages but can archive them. I love their spam protection and their advanced search.

All of us might be more or less acquainted with the Russian Matryoshka, initially the toy invented at the end of the 19th century for the children and presently one of the popular traditional Russian souvenirs. First Matryoshkas were featuring Russian girls in their folk dresses ( there were no dolls in Russia at that time) and later on the painters started drawing holidays and different events.В In the world of high technology there are still craftsmen that follow the tradition of Matryoshka design and painting but there are also new creators with the new approach.

There are lots of car brands but I could never image how many there actually are … so we made this parade of car brands from A to Z.В For some letters I could think only of one car brand, for others there are several and some letters are still vacant! So if you think of starting your own car business you can “rent”В the letter that still vacant and be the first and probably the only one.
