    This is a frequently discussed topic here. Apple will never allow Flash on iPads - see


    Thoughts on Flash

    Having said that, there are many third-party browsers that 'sort of' allow Flash - by hosting on remote web sites. For some applications it's OK but not totally satisfactory.

    You'll see many ..... many ...... discussions on this here.

    Some websites that use flash are know using HTML5 instead,one of my favourite sites has gone over as I could not see the opening header and info on that site ,I think that iPad ,iPad2 strength will end up with more sites using HTML5 as it's not as big or messy to run.

    I downloaded iswifter from app store (free.) Works on Hulu.
    Slow to react to page down function and will "timeout" after a period of time if you don't use keyboard every so often during a video. It will show (most of the time) a drop down that you tap to continue. Still, it is acceptable for now for free.

    Not everyone has to agree with your point of views, but at some point they need to accept Them!
