sascott: "My connection is very slow at work, so Interflora's solution meant only having to wait twice (once to load the Flash, then again to submit the transaction) for the order to be completed."

If that's all it took, they could have done a single page Web form. The result: no need to have the correct plug-in (if you can get one, of course), no need to download the Flash content (cue spinning logos unless the "designer" had been restrained and medicated), site usability and accessibility increased by an order of magnitude.

Are you going to advocate ActiveX for an encore?
