    BrianKeith, thanks for the puffin browser suggestion. I had not heard of that one & will try it later when I get home. I don't take my ipad2 to work anymore as I found that in work related issues it was simply too painful to deal with some of the ipad issues.

    I for one, can't wait for an un-tethered jailbreak to come out for the IP2. I know that's coming and will solve a lot of the issues that make the ipad a "device for newbies" and so infuriating for more sophisticated users.

    -I don't know who u are, I don't know what u want. If u are looking for a ransom, I can tell u I don't have money, but what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills that I have acquired over the course of watching Chuck Norris in Walker, Texas Ranger, skills that make me a nightmare for people like u.

    No problem. I feel the way that you do, to an extent. However, I actually love my IPhone 4 and IPad 2 now, and yes, when they are jailbroken, it's just that much better.

    Skyfire is def the worst browser I have ever used. Yea the flash compatibility is useful but barley you can't scroll through the video. The browser it self is so Suggish patty I honestly get frustrated and annoyed. The only good feature are the twitter and Facebook connect, and that is the only reason I still haven't delete it. Every time I try to give it another chance it just fails me! Even on the iPad 2 the performance is less that satisfactory.

    I would recommend mecrury browser or terra.

    As a long time member of this forum I can tell you that the Flash arguement is older than Moses and just as desicated. Search any one of the forums and you'll see it over and over again, ad vomitus. After 11 months of hearing the same old arguments by self-professed tech wizards that just joined the forum yesterday it gets tiresome. I just wish I'd posted the dead horse, instead.

    With all due respect, maybe you have been a long time member of these forums. However, many others join these forums everyday, and they want to chat about this issue, because it is obviously a hot topic. The forums are for everyone. As I told the previous poster, no one forced him to even come into this thread. You shouldn't feel "tiresome" by this thread when you made the chose to come into this thread yourself. If you came into this thread, and didn't like the topic, you and others who feel like you, could easily "keep it moving", and go to another thread that you are truly interested in, but you and others like you, seem to prefer to join threads that you do not like, just to tell others who obviously are interested in that thread, that you disapprove.

    That's what the search function in the forum is for. Go to a previous opened thread on this same subject and chat, opine, or rant to your heart's content. This duplication of threads makes at least twenty. Like I said, tiresome.

    There is another easy solution to viewing Flash content that works pretty well, at least for watching videos. Buy a copy of Splashtop remote desktop and simply remote into your PC and view your Flash content via remote desktop. I use it all the time at home to watch Hulu and other Flash only video websites and it works surprisingly well. It isn't 100% perfect as there can be a little lag from time to time but it is plenty good enough. If you are blessed with a good upload speed (not me, but I never take my iPad into the wild) from your ISP you can even do this when you are away from home.

    If I am doing any serious Internet research I don't even use a native browser on the iPad. I just remote into my desktop and use Firefox to do the heavy lifting. That way I don't need to bookmark a bunch of sites that I couldn't view from my iPad.

    Actually, I don't think that's for you or I to decide. If the mods allow these threads, it must mean that it's ok. And again, it's only tiresome to you because you choose to come into a thread that you aren't interested in. That's really your fault. If you don't like the thread, you could easily go to another thread that you prefer. However, you seem to enjoy entering threads that you don't like, only to complain about it.

    As you like. I've just optioned your advise to ignore the rest of your tiresome thread.

    P.S. You obviously are new here and have not really researched your thoughts. If you were here for any length you'd see that I do not enter threads to complain. Just this one (or ones like it). Same old, same old. Like I said originally... Done!
