    I am considering a purchase of a new iPad 2, but one of the reasons I have forgone the purchase of an iPad was that it had no Flash support.

    How is the browsing experience with no Flash support? And, why would I want to invest in an iPad 2 if I can only experience a percentage of the internet?

    Oh please. Someone hide this thread quickly :D

    Searching for 'Flash' on this forum will lead you to the results you want and prevent this topic from trailing off into a flame war. Flash is the most hotly debated topic.

    For me the browsing is great. I don't notice the lack of Flash. Others seem to miss it. Feel free to install a Flash blocker on your normal computer and test it out for yourself rather than relying on someone else's experiences, though. That's what I did a year ago and I still have the Flash blocker installed.

    Flash. Well ~ at least you are doing some research before you buy. I have had my iPad for almost a year and I go to lots of sites. Not once have I been not able to, actually ~ that is not true. Once, it told me "this device doesn't support Flash" I forget what site it was.

    You must remember the ipad is not a computer. Ask yourself what you plan on doing with it ~ why you want an iPad.

    And research Flash here and read and read.

    Others will chime in to help ~ just remember that flash is a sensitive topic here....

    Having said this: Which you two beat me to it ~

    We are all going to be very respectful and helpful to Mr. Trent McNair, simply because he has not bought his iPad yet and needs guidance. This is a good thing:)

    Then don't open the thread. Okay? Be careful.

    I did that initially - probably should have done the search by post title instead of the 'flash' flood of results I got by doing a thread search. Got tired of sifting through them quickly, so here I am with this topic. Foot, mouth, the whole shebang.

    Whether you need flash, depends on the sites you frequent. Personally, have I only come across two websites which wouldn't work, due to flash, but I can't mention them here.

    Flash can be easily replaced by HTML5, if it is just used as a container file for videos. If that is what you usually browse, then browsing will work fine on the iPad. What will not work, are flash based interactive websites, as those are more difficult to convert to html5.

    I've often wondered by the brilliant programmers here haven't created some sort of nifty little program that will recognize the "F" word in a subject line (or message) and automatically reroute the thread to the many existing threads on the same topic. Redundancy avoidance.
