Some people like flash and some don’t, but if you already have a flash site or you’re thinking about launching one, be sure it is user friendly from the moment they first enter the site until the moment they leave.

Whether we like it or not, flash sites with awesome animated content can not load instantly, and that is why we often have to deal with boring preloaders. However, there are developers who add creative preloaders so that users could not only see how long it will take for the site to load, but also watch something funny. That said, I invite you to see these 20+ preloaders which are well worth checking out. We hope you will find them inspiring and useful.

A preloader is the first thing users see on entering a flash site and if itís boring or takes a long time to load, more than likely users will switch to another website. But that’s not what you want, right? Then, why don’t you build a stunning preloader that will motivate users to stay on the site to actually see the main content?

It is fair to say that not everyone likes watching preloaders no matter how great they are, but if the preloader is amusing, it will surely keep more people interested in your website.

  1. A good stuff! Thanks for sharing! Preloads so nice!

  2. Admittedly preloaders were a lot more popular during the Flash days of the web. Many Japanese and Chinese web designers still use Flash a lot.

    Plus the increase in jQuery functionality also brings preloaders into a new light. This is a fantastic gallery for web designers to check out. Great examples and very inspirational.

  3. I love these designs. I know a lot of people don’t use preloaders as much but I’ve always loved using them.
