27 Artistic and Innovative Flash Preloaders

Published: Mar 08, 2011

So what is a Flash Preloader? What is it for? Who uses it?

Flash preloaders are those “growing horizontal bars” that let you know how much (usually percentage-wise) time is left for your software to run. It is for users to know how much longer they have to wait – until their website is loaded. Hence, “preloader”. Flash preloaders are almost always – used in Flash-based websites.

Now, instead of the boring horizontal bar, developers have become creative and made their preloaders a bit more entertaining and visually appealling. Check out these 27 Artistic and Innovative Flash Preloaders:
