    I hate bringing this conversation back again and again, so let's have some fun instead.

    Every time you hit a website where the lack of flash makes you do this:
    [​IMG]
    Post it here.

    Simple, only post the link and what you were trying to do

    No discussions regarding the pros/cons of having/not having flash support.
    No arguing and going off topic.
    No hating on the website and/or web designers.

    Keep this clean and honest, don't go around the web finding websites that have flash and posting them here.

    I made this because I regularly hit 'Flash walls' while surfing the net and was wondering if its just me (being an above average surfer) or if it happens regularly to other people.

    I'll start.

    While trying to find a deal for lunch:

    As I stated...just post links when it does happen. There's no need to start a conversation on this topic, as it has been done to death. I am also going to avoid pointing out your severely flawed logic there...

    Yep.

    www.vh1.com

    www.fox.com

    www.comedycentral.com

    Most of the full episodes on these sites can't be watched on an iPad.

    HTML 5 is slowly catching on though. I expect that most will convert in the next few years. No one wants to exclude the huge Apple mobile device base from their sites (and therefore their advertising)

    Some of the videos at NBA.com don't play due to lack of flash.

    Shows like Tosh.0 on comedy central have their own apps that play the clips without using flash.

    This is pretty nice app. Able to play Hulu very nicely. It's not pefect for all sites but works much better than Skyfire imo.

    Great graphic, really sums up the dead in the water experience of using safari. But why make a list of sites you can't visit when there's solutions out there that will let you browse Flash based websites. My favorite is Always On PC, www.alwaysonpc.com/FireFox-iPad-flash-player.
