Try skyfire , all one word. Depending on where you are, it may not be in your app store.

Will we ever get 'Flash' or something like it for IPad? There are a lot of sites that use it.Not real keen on jail breaking .

Thanks David.
The sound is like it's coming from underwater. Is that normal?

In a meeting SJ announced that flash would never be used by Apple as it's too 'buggy'. His word not mine.

............it drains the battery fast.
Now how would you know that since flash isn't an option? How much of it would you run? Videos drain battery faster than it sitting in my bag but I have the option to either watch them and drain battery or leave it in the bag.

SJ is an ass and just doesn't want it to work.

Flash IS a battery killer.
1) on laptops it can and will suck down battery. I have flash disabled on my Mbp and easily get 7 hours browsing. But with flash on I get about 4-5.
2) Apple has tested flash on the iPhone and it does suck down battery. I've used frash before and my battery life was 2 hours (I wanted to see for myself)


I myself could care less for flash because it is buggy as hell also.

On my phone, Flash content appears with a little green arrow icon inside a box. I touch it to trigger the content otherwise it's not active. So battery wise is negligible.

Anyways, here's a bit of HTML5 news recently released. Facebook is gonna try to circumvent the App Store via HTML5. I've seen lots of post asking for a shift to the standard. This should trigger a ton of copy cats if successful. At least unless Mobile Safari gets locked up in iOS 5.1 ;)
