Portfolio websites should be all about the user experience as these sites rarely provide a real value to an accidental visitor. If prospective employer is the only intended audience then a downloadable pdf or a Behance page should suffice.

Hovering a link with a finger on a touchscreen laptops or tablets is still not possible, while iPads do not even support flash, so the experience is not quite the same. That is why I turned to a more compatible technology for making the current website.
