Adobe Flex

If your site is purely animations (like some company timeline from the start of the company to the current date), it's well suited for this use case.

ASP.NET

It is highly recommended for the small application being hosted in a shared environment, also, recommend if you want a faster time to market. It has a huge inbuilt toolset for easier and faster development. Don't use if you are planning to build a single page application

Pros

  • Highly advanced UI platform, well suited for building enterprise applications.
  • Cross browser issues do not exist as it runs the same on every browser via Flash Player.
  • Animations are something that comes out of the box.

  • Templating engine - ASP.NET Razor markup allows an easy way to embed server-based code into web pages, and the powerful build in helper methods allow complex functionality to be included with a single line of code.
  • Extensibility - ASP.NET can take advantage of the massive amount of third-party components and extensibility provided by the .NET Framework and related infrastructure. For instance, NuGet.org provides thousands of components that can be used and incorporated into ASP.NET applications.

Cons

  • It's heavy as it needs to load the Flash plugin first before rendering anything to the user.
  • Not future ready as there is no support for mobile and tablet platforms.

  • Recent technologies like Node.js and Angular are picking up fast. Most of the controls run at server which is a huge drawback when compared to other technologies.
  • Out of the box support is missing for many features - Logging, caching (distributed).
  • IIS setup is not easy/straight forward unless you go for simple deployment.
