An Intersting approach

Check out this site, they choose to not run their site through the browser but rather through a tiny flash app you download to your desktop, then run. The app then takes over your full screen, creating an entirely immersive experience. Its relatively simple, but very cool.

Very cool. I dig the shoes.

Do you think that this might be a direction that interactive "sites" might be going? Very powerful way to direct people towards the information. I wonder if people might feel it is too invasive.

I love the fact that it mimics an operating system.

Well, i honestly don't now if it'll catch on anytime soon. it doesn, in fact, feel a bit invasive, AND There's always the whole cross platform issue that will most likely nevre be resolved. But i could be comepletely wrong, too and it may be the next big thing. i do like the browserless experience.
