Birthdays come but once a year, and we have a great and quirky selection of cards to send to your friends and loved ones. Here are 9 randomly chosen birthday ecards:
Old Git Birthday
Celebrate Another Year
LEGO | Miners - happy ...
Charlie Brown Birthday
Farting Birthday Pengu...
Lots of updates this evening.
1. A new GIF Animations category
2. A bit early, but a new Animated Christmas GIFs category.
3. Fifty three new photos, from Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and the RHS Flower Show Tatton Park.
4. Various other new animated gifs added to the site - the full list of new ecards are here. Some are new Halloween designs, and some are in the Get Well Soon section. Since removing all flash content last week I'll be slowly adding in more animated GIF designs as and when I can find good quality designs. They don't offer interactions like the flash designs did, but some of them are still pretty striking.
I've added 62 new ecards this evening.
Some are in a new Love Songs category, and the rest are scattered around the site, and are mainly taken from Behance.
As a follow on from yesterday's announcement about Flash - it is still possible to send ecards from the site - e.g. image / photo and video based designs. I removed all flash designs, but everything else is still there!
As of 20th July 2015, all flash content has been removed from the site. If you have sent a flash ecard, it can still be collected by the recipient, but it will not be possible to send any new flash ecards.
This is partly because flash is not supported on mobile devices - Steve Jobs started the ball rolling on that front (more info here and here).
I used to think it was fine for people on PCs, Macs etc. to use the flash player, but then on 20th July 2015 I read that Facebook calls for end to Flash as Firefox blocks it over hacking holes.
I'm aware that there are tools available to convert Flash to HTML5 but having tried Swiffy I found that it doesn't really work all that well and that the converted versions didn't always include the interactivity that was included in Flash.
