    Umm ... If it's just a website, certainly not flash.

    If it's web-based, 3D MMORPG ... sure, use flash. Otherwise, no flash ... flash is just terrible.

    I agree with Apple. Flash is just terrible.

    Use CODE tags!

    I agree with svidgen. Websites should not be in flash. Web applications or games, yes, but not a website itself.

    Keep in mind that neither iPhone, nor iPad support Flash.

    I would add that pagination should not exist on the web.. except to distribute the load of image/video-heavy sites. But of course, marketing always finds a way to monetize on visitors.

    Can you elaborate? What type of pagination should not be used?

    On the flip side, HTML5 isn't officially out, nor fully supported.

    As in "Here is this news article.. but is broken down on 8 pages"
    of course, every page is filled with ads so that by visiting a single article over 8 pages, a user creates more than one impression on ads = increased profitability for whoever runs the site.

    My opinion about the web is that being electronic and all, most articles/blog posts/instructions/reviews can (and should) be posted in a single page and increase the viewer's likelihood of coming back on a regular basis.

    The exception being actual online manuals/books where content is arranged in sections/chapters

    Ever consider that pagination is sometimes good for the UX? I don't, for instance, want to see 100 search results on a single page.

    No website should be in Flash, that's the absolute rule. I remember Flash-based websites being in-trend 5-6 years ago, and maybe even more.

    Neither. HTML5 isn't fully supported yet, so if you want your website to be widely accessible, it's useless for now. Flash won't show up on Apple OSx devices.

    If you're making a normal website, your best bet is to either use Wordpress, Dreamweaver, or plain HTML/CSS.

    Knock it off. Since when has any version HTML ever been fully supported across the board? (hint: never.)
