    Man, at first I thought you were seeing things, but it does change colors...you just have to wait a long time to be sure it's happening.

    I like the minimalist design...except I think it's "framed" a bit too wide. Even when I hit the maximize button in Safari, the left menu is partially cut off. I can see everything only if I pull the drag handle at the bottom of the Safari window, to make the window very wide.

    I don't think that I would even be on the site long enough to notice the change.

    They've used Flash. I know next to nothing about Flash, so don't ask for any more details :)

    The whole site is flash... so really you can't even steal their sourcecode or anything...

    :p

    Try asking them... lol.

    Actionscript.... it's really not that difficult, I used something similar in Director project a couple of years ago dynamically by Lingo, but it was no where near as subtle as this site though.

    I love this minimal use of Flash, there's many bad examples of Flash online, the stuff zooming in, the nasty looped sounds, the loaders, the vector shapes things flashing in and out, and that god damn awful flash text effect were it animates and fades... it's like everything that is bad is generally crammed into 1 site... :rolleyes:

    But I'm def down with this Tank site... good stuff! ;)
