Speed up that loader!

I hate loading animations and try my best to program my Flash sites so that loading is done in the background or at other times when the user will not notice very much, only when I absolutely have to (which is, I must admit, all too often) I throw up a loading animation.

I have noticed that it’s not so much the size of the things I load as the number of things that plays in to how much time the loading takes, which is, among other things, explained in this article on Ajaxian (it’s based on another article which you can find here: Optimizing page load time).

And yes, what Ajaxian has to say applies to Flash and ActionScript, and in this case very much so since Flash applications don’t have the luxury of being auto-layouted during loading as HTML is.
