    I'm using an iPad Air for work and having trouble loading some flash websites using safari . Is there anyway to load these flash websites without any errors ?

    Apple is very anti flash. There's no way to load those sites. Sorry to say

    A lot of major industry players are against Flash, it would probably be more accurate to say, though Apple was early in leading the charge away from it.

    How is saying Apple is anti flash any less accurate than "everybody including Apple is very anti flash"? Flash is dying. Doesn't really matter

    There are App Store apps that can help with this, Puffin, Photon, etc. Puffin being my favorite.

    Check them out.

    Photon is my favorite, but Puffin will definitely get the job done. I used to use this back when iOS was really hopeless because everything was flash based. Now of course, I have no issues using iOS as my main computer.

    Yeah, iPad has issues with Flash, as well as DOS, COBOL, and FORTRAN.

    Occasionally I have to access flash sites and I did not like the idea of using another browser. However I eventually tried puffin and was pretty pleased with it. I couldn't use it as a standard browser but it does a really good job when I need to use it. Works great. I haven't tried any others.

    Because the way that you said it makes it sound like Apple is on some lone crusade to squash Flash when the reality is that it's part of a larger industry trend. That's all.

    Chrome in iOS cannot run Flash either.

    Flash is dead. Find some other sites.

    Unfortunately, in 1% of useful sites, it's not.

    In the other 99%, it's dead jim.
