Er, Flash . . .

Careful though - Flash is good for catching the eye, but it has been horribly abused in the past.

Flash completely defeats the object of client side page rendering (ie HTML).
Too many designers got carried away and thought people would be prepared to sit and watch an irritating preloader (or sometimes several) slowly tick off the percentage loaded, in order to see their shiny artistic gadgetry.

Fat chance. There are a good number of web users now who will just leave as soon as they see Flash. If it doesn't load at the same speed as the rest of the page, you're losing trade.
