My PC is an Adobe-free zone. At one website I frequent (Care2 e-cards) I am continually admonished for not having Adobe Flash v.9 or better. I figured to browse there on my iPad but I get no images at all. I guess it is a similar problem.
What is the iPad equivalent of Adobe Flash? I searched the AppStore. There are a zillion Adobe apps but no Flash.

Apple iOS devices have never supported Flash. A workaround is to download a browser app such as Puffin Browser that converts Flash content online and sends it to the iPad in a form that will play. This does, however, come at a price. Resolution is lower and it uses a lot of battery power.

Most websites are now supporting HTML5 as a better replacement for Flash.

Recently, Adobe has announced that development and distribution of Flash will stop in 2020. https://www.google.ca/amp/appleinsi...ife-plans-will-stop-distribution-in-2020/amp/
