    Silly but need to know.

    Wifey is moving from dell to MbA soon and as we know the iPad and iPhone doesn't allow flash, will safari and the actual laptops allow flash on websites?

    Chrome has the advantage of having built-in flash support. I use Chrome as my primary browser, but have Firefox and Opera as well. It seems that no matter how hard you try, every browser will have trouble with some website or another.

    I also use click-to-flash to avoid excessive ads

    You don't need chrome, I use Safari and flash works fine.

    I agree. I've never had a problem with Flash on Safari.

    For Flash-related issues:
    • Find your Flash version and make sure it's the latest version available. Never install or update Flash from a pop-up on a website. Always go to Adobe's site to get Flash or updates.
    • Install ClickToFlash (Safari), Flashblock (Firefox) or FlashBlock (Chrome) to control which Flash content plays on websites.
    • Try using the YouTube HTML5 Video Player to watch YouTube videos, when available. (May impact fullscreen viewing. See link for details.) As far as performance impact, YMMV.

    Safari is probably fine too. I just happened to get used to Chrome. My wife still demands firefox, so we need multiple browsers on the shared systems.
