Apple’s dominant iPad platform does not have a shortage of web browsers. From Apple’s own excellent Safari to Google’s rising Chrome, the iPad enjoys quality web browsers that compete with each other for the use of consumers. While the previous two browsers are certainly among the more popular, there are other applications that compete in other ways. The Puffin Web Browser is on the forefront of these browsers, offering various features not found on any of the more popular choices.
People used to whine about the iPad’s lack of Flash support, saying that it’d never suit for watching videos on the world wide web as Flash is integral and immovable.
Yes, it’s buggy, bloated, and unlovable, but you’ve got to stick with it because that’s the way things are; Flash is the British (and a few friends) driving on the left side of the road, it’s not really necessary if you were to start from scratch, but it’s too difficult (and dangerous) to change it now…
I’m here to announce some good news; watching stuff is going to be fun again, and it’s down to the iPad!
With the upcoming iOS 5 launch expected sometime in early October, a few people may still be wondering how the long battle between Adobe and Apple will pan out, clinging onto the hope that Flash may appear.
I can tell you now that Flash will not appear in an official form on iOS 5 or any other iOS update. Despite Steve Jobs stepping down as CEO, it is clear that Apple find Flash to be buggy and unstable – they are pushing the modern HTML 5 technology. However, that doesn’t necessarily stop you from having access to flash yourself…
The simple fact is that unless you plan on Jailbreaking and using Frash you are limited to Flash enabled browsers. Read on to find out the best way to get Flash on your iPad!
To test Flash we used 3 methods; Video, Flash websites, and Flash Games in order to provide a solid view of general performance.
