Unless you need NS4, then pseudo-scrolls are required...you knew that
though :)

I'm sure Thomas would differ with the _have_ part...

http://milov.nl/iambald/ - Higher numbered = more recent
http://www.xs4all.nl/~peterned/ - Play Sojourn! Beehive is excellent...
http://www.deviantart.com - Only because of the immense amout of
functionality that could never be duplicated in any Flash site for less
than $100,000, and scale like it does.

Of course everyone has seen WebFx and dynamic-core's widgets.
Microsoft's site is pretty javascript heavy, especially the msdn parts.
I've dug into the stuff behind that sidebar, and it's really groovy.

Of course there are a million and one awesome Flash sites out there,
that blow my socks off when I get on a Flash site cruising kick. I'd say
if someone has the talent to produce a Flash site that includes the
functionality that iht.com does then go for it. I wouldn't want to pay
the bill though...
