    Hi,

    Wondering if there are any browsers out there that'll support flash Websites?

    I read that Skyfire provides transcoded Flash to HTML5 for videos, but will this work for websites like http://www.bestbuy.com/site/index.jsp that use little flash apps to scroll through their current sales?

    Thanks!

    I'm more than willing to try Skyfire if it'll support flash plugins on websites, and not only videos. Do you know if it does?

    This topic has been discussed to death on this forum. Just hit the Search field at the top and type in Flash. All your questions I can pretty much guarantee have already been answered more than once.

    Yeah. Somer is correct. Which is probably why you didn't get many hits. Folks tend to run, faint, scream when seeing the F word.

    +1, that is funny as FLASH! lol

    Anyways, OP, No, it will not do flash plugins. All SkyFire does (and does well, dont get me wrong) is take a video that is in flash, use its own servers to convert it into HTML5 format, and stream it to your iDevice.

    Easiest way, if Skyfire doesn't work on a site and you have another computer, is to use a program to dial into it (I use Remote Tap, but there are many options) and run a browser remotely.
