When I first got my iPod touch, I remember thinking that it would be annoying browsing the web because it's web browser did not support flash. However, I have to say, I think lack of flash support is an excellent idea. The reason? Ads! I hate flash ads, they're distracting, chew up precious Internet downloads, and it seems video flash ads are becoming ever more common. Plus, having a YouTube app means I am still able to watch I Internet video. So really , appart from the odd flash-only website, I see no downside to apple continuing to leave out flash support in iPhone os safari.
