Will flash still work for tablets then when Chrome for android goes official? Flash is still a huge part of heavy traffic sites and not having it on a tablet is pushing it. Even on a phone, I love to keep it on-demand.

lol, I like how Apple fans think that they've won because we lost support for Flash.

Flash = 1, HTML5 = 1

iOS = 1 VS Android = 2

Android loses Flash support (Even though it's still on stock browser and working, but nevermind, we'll let you have that.)

iOS = 1 VS Android = 1

Apple Fan logic: 1>1...

Adobe was a traitor!

They started all this flash thingy, now they back out? 90% of the ww websites adopting this, espcially those big premium brands/corporations. All I can see in Adobe eye's was money.

They back out from Flash & try to pursuing people go into HTML5 like what the "Death, Gone & Arrogant Steve = The Greatest Copy Cat of Other People Invention of All Time" said "flash is dead". Doing this could earn them big fortune again.

The real problem in the cripple smartphones like iF***, iF***S and the big & heavy iP**, iP***2 not adopting Flash was, THEIR CPU SPEED ARE WAY TOO SLOW. To make the matter worst,
THEY SUCK TOO MANY BATTERY POWER IN ORDER TO MAKE THE INTERFACE & SYSTEM RUNNING SMOOTH.

Hope United States Congressman are not sleeping, they should get someone probe into Adobe and the rest ganging for the new corporate conspiracy slaughing consumer/public money again.

Anyway the best move should be, Google should acquire Adobe "Flash only" patent and get it going exclusively for Android devices &WWW.

I'd say it's Apple fault for forcing ADOBE getting rid of flash. since they update flash and remove it then add with HTML5 my browser been slower and the videos doesn't even load
