Following Gruber's Going Flash-Free on Mac OS X, and How to Cheat When You Need It, and with Flash slowing my new Lion Mac down to a crawl, I decided to try to live without flash. I've found that while I can get away from needing flash on an iPad almost entirely, I've encountered several prominent sites that still require it on a Mac. YouTube will happily serve you HTML5 video but Facebook won't. I use the FB app in iOS so I've never missed Facebook video on an iPad. Is there a way around this? Still on Facebook, I upload photos routinely as part of my job. Turns out that their photo uploader is flash. Bummer. CNN's video player is flash. It works on an iPad (HTML5?) but not on a Mac. Is there a way to have Safari tell websites that it's an iPad by default? I know there's a feature in the developer menu, but it reverts back to Safari for Mac when you open a new tab or window. Share your stories and workarounds of living without flash.
