    The latest build of BB10 come without Adobe Flash. Developers know this and for them it isn't end of world. Will you miss web browser Flash support?

    Haven't had Flash for two years now, and it really hasn't affected me at all.

    Nope... Always turned it off on my PlayBook to save battery life. On my Z10 I'm always getting a "your version of Flash needs to be updated" message, but I'm running a leak so I assume it has the latest version. So I can't watch some online network show because the BlackBerry Browers isn't upto date, and there isn't an App for that network.

    I have been using an iPad a lot and haven't noticed any problems not getting content due to the lack of flash.

    Need to see if I can uninstall flash on my PC... as it ALWAYS telling me there is a new update that needs to be installed. Need to take the time to install Safari for windows and see if you can set it on a mobile version to emulate the iPad.

    If they add the ability to set a default user agent to Android/Iphone then most people won't even notice.

    That's because iDevices are catered to, i.e. content is reformatted/converted for them.

    This will work, but then BlackBerry web usage stats will drop down, which will further skew content producers to make more Android/iOS compatible pages.

    I agree thats probably why they don't so they can see the results in StatCounter and NetMarketShare but its not like content producers are testing their pages on other platforms anyway. Leave the default but add the ability to change it. Changes from default rarely affect the majority anyway and few even know what a user agent is or does.

    If they leave the default, then they should also leave Flash so that people don't end up complaining that content works on Android/iOS but not on BlackBerry.

    If I were BB and didn't want to continue to pay license fees and development time to keep BB Flash up to date which appears to be the reason its gone bye-bye is I'd add an option that works just like Desktop mode to send a request with a different user agent. Call it Android mode if you want.

    Flash is one of the reasons I stuck with Blackberry. I like to be able to see some websites the same as how they appear on a desktop. Flash allows me to watch steaming hockey that's use flash.

    Flash is just dying and I think it's good to move away from that technology. HTML 5 is really the way to go now for web developers.

    You know what. The delay until February could be part of the fact that flash is being removed and they are preparing a solution. For anyone that's not on a leak with exception to the Classic we still have flash.

    If flash is important, which it is to me, Browser 10 works great. I downloaded it from the app store.

    Yes, I believe one of the reasons for the delay is:

    They wanna give us THE 10.3.1 we've all been waiting for. And that would realistically include Flash...

    The reason I loved Flash was I didn't need an app for everything. Now where you have a flash enabled website, you have to get an app (if they have one)

    Flash isn't too reliable anymore. Seems like when it is on causes more problems than anything else. I just wish devs out there would abandon it and kill it off. It is a pig of a technology and a security nightmare.
