    I can't open some web pages in safari. Those could be open in Internet explorer. Those are flash player and active X supported web pages. How can I open them in Safari with Ipad2 ?

    You can't. The iPad does not support Flash. I'm not sure about Active X, but probably not.

    There are a few Flash capable browsers for the iPad. They don't work very well, since they are essentially remote sessions on a server, but they may be good enough for your purposes. The most common mentioned are iSwifter, Skyfire, and Puffin.

    The other option is to use a remote desktop client to control a desktop computer. Splashtop is popular and cheap.

    Yes - as the poet points out - the iPad doesn't support Flash or ActiveX. Apple have widely publicised this and they have published a 'White Paper' on their website explaining their rationale. You'll find dozens of threads on this issue at iPad Forum, including reviews of the Splashtop RDP program too. As there's so much information available here, I'm closing this thread to avoid replication.
