    Various browsers support Flash. Do a search here and you'll get a few hits on the browsers that support it.

    These browsers are not free are they? and do they drain battery life? do you have any experience with them?

    Flash itself is insecure and resource-heavy, which are some of the reasons I think Apple refused to implement it. Flash is also dead for mobile devices, adobe is no longer developing it. HTML 5 will make flash obsolete. Even if Apple had a change of heart and wanted to implement it, it would be too late now. As time goes on you'll see less and less flash videos on the web.

    Nc1169...there are many threads as what ijamesH mentioned that discuss various browser that support flash based sites.

    Have a look at these links--to give you an idea of what is out there. I have iSwifter which was $4.99. I used it for playing FB games. It's a little laggy, but with the updates it seems better. There is also puffin that is available as well.

    Take a look at these:

    With this-we will now close this thread. Thank you for your understanding.
