This report is based on usability research with 46 different Web-based applications in Flash that were tested with users in the United States, Germany, and Japan. We tested the way people use real, current applications to achieve representative tasks. The report contains 117 design guidelines (and 21 accessibility guidelines) that will make Rich Internet Applications more aligned with human behavior and thus easier to use.
