    I have had click to flash installed for a week now, just to see how often I run into a site that will be useless on the iPad. I was wondering if people wouldn't mind listing their findings here.

    The one that got me last night was Nikon.com. They have flash everywhere.

    What else?

    We really don't need a list. What you visit may not be what I visit, besides, we would find out pretty quickly if the site won't work on the iPad.

    Don't need a list. Hell, we don't need another iPad-Flash thread

    Yet it's perfectly fine to post a list of html5 sites?

    Yes, as long as it's the only thread doing that.

    There are probably 5 iPad-Flash threads that list popular sites that may be an issue for the user.

    MacRumors has Flash on it's page. Does that mean it'll be useless on the iPad?
    :rolleyes:

    The front page won't be completely useless. We will be able to read the text but the embedded Flash won't be there.

    It's true we won't be able to watch the Flash videos embedded into the articles, but if an iPad user clicks on the video it will open up in the YouTube app, or it's possible YouTube will open up embedded videos to the HTML 5 version.

    Really?

    I surf macrumors all the time with my iPhone. I also block ads on my mac and particularly flash ads so I don't notice any difference between my iPhone or on any other computers I use. Most videos pop up in the YouTube app.

    Meh, another flash thread, call me surprised

    I don't really see the need to react so harshly. Yes - this is another inane flash thread - but no one had to click on the thread. You KNEW what the thread was about from the subject line. The OP didn't try and trick anyone.

    With all the anti-flash threads (and pro-flash too) - why get in a tizzy over this one/another one.

    Relax people. Again - no one made you click in.

    Just assume that any website for a photographer or a restaurant won't work. Because they really had to use flash to display a slideshow or a menu.

    I've had click2flash on my mac for a while and for me, personally, the only time where I've used flash is either Stickam or YouTube. Obviously YouTube on a desktop it will go with Flash instead of the direct video. Stickam has an app for the iPhone, but it drains the batteries like no tomorrow [probably even worse with Flash]. Plus, you can't view other people's cams.
