    It is one of the most useful features BB10 has over competition! And in certain cases it is really useful!! There's already the option to disable it in the browser, why totally remove it?!? Can someone inside BlackBerry explain us?

    Its not useful for mobile sites anymore as Safari(Apple) and Chrome(Google) mobile browsers haven't supported it. Maybe because of the security risk as well, lots of Flash vulnerabilities show up all the time.

    I'm pretty sure BlackBerry has to pay some sort of licence fee for having it in their devices too (but I might be wrong).

    Si.

    As far as I know the development on mobile flash is dead which is why the browser flash player is so old sites don't even recognize it

    I thought I read somewhere that Adobe wasn't supporting or updating mobile Flash any more?

    I am not sure that they plan to remove the Flash capability from the browser.

    They will remove the Adobe AIR runtime from the OS, but I'm not sure that involves the removal of Flash from the browser as well.

    Maybe someone who knows the subject better could explain.

    Mobile Flash is stuck on 11.1 plus security updates.

    However, the absence of Flash may just be for this specific 10.3.1 OS.

    I really hope so because this is one feature that lets you see full websites better and ofcourse the streaming media. I'm hoping that BlackBerry realizes how important this is especially when big App developers don't develop streaming apps for BB10 as readily.. Fifa WC is an example where I followed most of the games on web browser because non of the android apps played nicely on my phone..

    Well.. I for one will be really angry if they stopped supporting it..

    Not sure for one year or more, but that's what I was told in February when they wrote to all developers that they were going to remove air and flash support.
    Because BlackBerry for having flash in browser must access to its source code, and access + the development team behind is crazy expensive and not worth

    No flash on the browser is the kind of thing that WILL get me to leave to something that will have it.

    To where?
    Ios will never have it.
    Windows phone also will never have it
    Android had it for a short time three years ago and now it's unsupported on 4.4 and on all browsers.
    Jolla doesn't have also.
    Firefox os doesn't have it too.

    So, there are only two ways to keep flash on your phone.
    Keep 10.2.1 forever on BB10 or buy a 4 years old motorola DROID (the first one with android 2.1)

    'There's an app for that' For Android and IOS users they can use Puffin browser for flash sites.

    It's been somewhat confirmed that flash was just left out of the leaked 10.3.1 build that it will be there for the official release

    Puffin browser doesn't have real flash. It just render flash on their servers and then stream to the user.
    It's slow, useless for games, and for videos html5 is enough.
    Don't forget that 99% of the smartphones don't have flash, so the chance to find flash is becoming more and more rarer.
    I keep flash disabled on my Z10 and also on my desktop, it's very very rare to find a website that needs flash (read: it must come from the pre-iphone era)

    Lol.. where you gonna go bruh? You don't really have any options left for Flash unless it's emulated. Android can still do it but it's no go in Chrome, you'll have to use a different browser.

    Puffin is useful in small use cases thats the point. Not sure what sites OP is using that don't use HTML5 but I imagine an app like Puffin would be useful there.

    Any Android smartphone will do.

    Step 1 - install Dolphin browser
    Step 2 - Install Flash Player 11.1
    Step 3 - Open Dolphin and enable flash support

    The link I've provided above is for KitKat devices, if you're on an older version of Android, the Flash Player from Adobe's archives will work.

    Flash isn't being removed. Flash based App Support is being removed.

    I blame Adobe. If they had fought back against Jobs, then more effort would have been put into improving Flash instead of hoping HTML5 will be able to replace the functionality and ease of development.
