Don't EVEN think about Flash.

I use new iPad more than my regular computer and I've come across photography websites that won't display because of Flash. They have no idea how much better images look on iPad than on regular monitors. The display is breathtaking - it's enormously sharp and exceeds all the gamuts of RGB. Also the resolution is another reason for its amazing display.

So, use HTML5/Javascript and make sure it works on iPad/iPhone otherwise you'll lose a lot of visits. I read somewhere that 95% of web traffic for mobiles go to iPads and that says a lot - a lot of iPad users are heavy web users. And those who use Flash will lose those iPad users. I sure have left websites that use Flash.
