When I initially created the Humble Visualisations, I was pretty happy that by using the Google Image Chart API, I was able to present something which was pretty browser friendly and easy to yoink via wget without any server side load for me.
The sacrifice there was interactivity, which wasn't as big a deal when there were 5 promotions. As we close in on 30 now, it's clear that having the ability to show and hide specific data is really important, and when I started working with D3 for another project, it seemed like a really good and exciting fit!
It wasn't an easy decision to make to effectively drop support for some people, and I'd really like to know what kind of impact this has had. Feel free to comment/make suggestions.
