    Anyone used the puffin browser and noticed the frame lag on flash videos, also flash content(Adverts etc). Is there a quick fix which is recommended?

    I have it in my Iphone but all I can say is, its just another crap program. The video staggers painfully along and when I tried to view in full screen mode, it freezes after a few seconds of playing.

    I find puffin excellent! It works like a dream! I can watch Hulu on my iPad and love it! Dunno why it has so many people who don't rate it!

    I downloaded the puffin browser, I'm on the free trial. Can't find out how much it will cost when that runs out.

    I only downloaded it so my daughter could play moshi monster game.

    I was wondering if anyone knew any other decent and reliable browsers of this type. The puffin browser seems ok, sound is awful so we play it on mute.

    The paid version of the Puffin browser costs $2.99. Here's the link.

    From what I tested, Puffin is the best browser for flash. It's the quickest! Skyfire is ok, photon is really bad.

    Puffin browser
    Until recent update I was able to watch live sports through the puffin browser on wiziwig/ nutjob.eu .
    Now the video won't play or load on my ipad3 and the site appears to hang and I'm unable to select anything on the Puffin browser once I've tried to play any of the links to the live sport. I've reinstalled the
    browser several times to no avail. Can anyone tell me what I could do or has anyone got the same
    problem or can you still play live sports on that site through the Puffin browser. I'm desperate as I
    watch horse racing through that site daily so any help would be appreciated as both nutjob.eu and puffin don't reply.
