Well, some people would argue that Flash is hardly used for anything

Wish that was true in our experiance - we have to deal with many sites
that are stupidly flash only!
But we tend to see everyday less Java applets (while Java is really used
on webapps containers, but this surely works for ages on AMD64).
If you buy things off the web - you will find that about 1/3 of the
shopping carts require Java ... Perhaps 1 in 10 require Flash - but
what if it is the only place that has what you need?
It is an incredibly stupid webshop that don't have a html fallback.
Why loose 1%-5% of the customers for no reason at all?
Even those with no java problems turns it off for speed/security sometimes.
If I have the slightest trouble with a webshop, I find another.
In the rare cases where nobody else have what I want, I place the
order by sending email instead. Email usually works, and one
can add a note about how their java requirement locks
some customers out too. sometimes that makes them think.
