Which do you use

Play: HTML Quiz

Play: Flash Quiz


I personally like the HTML quiz but what do you like more?

HTML, it's the older style, but I prefer to see the whole quiz rather have single questions. Plus the flash quiz requires double clicking answer choices.
It's good though, that players have a choice.

I, like aramis, prefer the original style. That does not say I don't like the new style.

I prefer the original style, but I have noticed that my children like the flash style. They like to know straight away if they were right. I, on the other hand, like the element of surprise. (especially when I have to guess the answers).

I'm a HTML man myself. I'm not impatient to know the answer. Once or twice, I've gone back and changed an answer I guessed at, based on what I've read further down the page.

I prefer HTML as well, though the latest trick of colouring the chosen answer has been a great improvement. The flash ones are very clever but tend to detract me from the actual questions. Just too busy.

I prefer the html too, as I often do what mugaboo does...go back and change an answer after reading something further down

I like the flash versions. It's because I'd like to see if my answer's correct right then.

Another "Mugaboo style" adept in here.

HTML, in no hurry and checking back on answers.

Here's another one for HTML! And as some have already stated, I have indeed changed answers once I read further into the quiz.

It's not that I don't like the new format, but I really like the old better and the color highlighting on the answer really was a nice edition for me.

And another for HTML - I like to review before I submit.

Add me to the HTML army. Mostly because, being a windy sort when I write stuff, Flash occasionally cuts off my quizzes in key places. Oh, and I too like to check back on answers as I go...

I dislike the way you NEED to put an answer in the box for a FITB in Flash, and I don't really like all the clicking. Also, Flash seems to be prone to more bugs.
So, put me down as another HTML. It's funny, I really thought when we started it up that Flash would be much more popular than it is, but HTML wins, hands down.

HTML here too. I prefer the choice of going back and reconsidering before submitting.

I prefer flash. No real reason! Notice that most people doing my quizzes play Classic though.

I guess flash is if you are rushing.
HTML is more standard. I like that.

I just got used to HTML.

I like HTML for "Brain Teasers" quizzes. I can answer the easy questions first and then work my way through the rest.

I choose Flash, wherever available, for the others as I like to know the answers straight away.

Put me down for HTML. Having to double click on Flash is an annoyance.

Somewhat off topic, but a thank you to Sue for correcting the original post's title!
