    Streaming a 1080p trailer of Avatar, I get 30% usage on a 1.6GHz Atom with Flash 10.1. I don't know what's wrong with your computer, but it isn't Flash.

    EDIT: Getting about 9% CPU usage on my quad core AMD Phenom II x4 streaming the same 1080p video.

    Flash was introduced FOURTEEN YEARS AGO, those of you that are trying to rationalize why Apple wouldn't put a toggle for it are only fooling yourselves. Maybe if Apple bumped up the battery capacity instead of DECREASING IT we wouldn't be facing these problems. My absolute number one gripe with the iPhone is the poor battery life, something that could definitely be remedied considering the amount of profit already made with each iPhone.

    On a computer running Windows flash doesn't bog down the CPU very much at all. Macs on the other hand (I'm guessing you are on a mac) is terrible with flash why exactly? well I don't think anyone really knows must have something to do with lazy programmers.

    Video streaming and flash is terrible on MAC computers. I can vouch for that first hand.

    Take the MAC supports. lol

    those aren't the only sites people visit.

    sometimes I think people that have been living in the Mac world where flash is so hot have conflated their experience with the 90% of computer users NOT running MacOS who have had a perfectly fine experience with flash. you guys hate Flash in ways that people using Windows and Linux do not. it's unfortunate that your experience hasn't been great...but don't presume that the rest of us are ready to toss Flash just because you're not happy with it.

    you guys represent 10% of the computing world, give or take. until it stinks for the rest of us, we won't feel a need to "get over it". and really, Flash is only going to get better and better now that its dominance is in jeopardy. if flash gets better, it will remain on top.

    nobody cares what websites use to serve up the content so long as they can get it.

    The funny thing is that I have a Mac, and flash works just fine. And on my iPhone, I don't NEED flash the majority of the time, but when it pops up, it would be nice to be able to use it. If there's a toggle in the settings for it, there's plausible deniability for all the people who complain about their battery dying faster hehehe.
    Flash is not going anywhere.

    My flash experience has been fine actually but i doubt flash will become so much better. I think it'll stay the same. Like one person says it's been around for 14yrs..how much better can it get.. companies have made formats for Apple to connect with for a long time. Look at all of the podcasts and ipod functionality out there. I think almost every car stereo is ipod capable. So i wouldn't doubt that websites will merge to html5. It'll happen whether you like it or not. If html5 is universal and not dependent on certain PCs and mobile phones than why not go to it? And besides iPhone is not the only phone that cannot access flash. We may represent 10% of the world but that 10% has been known to change things dramatically.

    There's still no reason not to put Flash in for now and put an switch in Settings.
    Umm, WRONG. There's plenty of HTML5 content out there, including youtube, you're obviously not looking hard enough. All third party Web browser coders have decided to drop support for flash also because whether you know it or not, it's a piece of ccrappp! Bugs, security holes and failure to keep up with OS's other than MS. Web content shouldn't revolve around one plugin that has excluded all others FOR A PRICE and stole open web content from the masses. Build a bridge, flash wrote its own demise. GONE!! Good riddance to bad rubbish.

    WRONG. Linux is dropping support for flash also, google linux flash problems, you'll see. The tired old argument "you're only 10% of the market" gets stale and even you guys know it's a lame excuse for crapp programming. There are more chopsticks sold in the world compared to knives and forks, so we should give it up to chopsticks now? Give me a break. The market will decide, not whiney little pussies playing flash games with one hand. What's wrong with choice? Should we just let Adobe run all web content. Web content used to be 100% open, until MS pushed flash on all its OS's 15 years ago, swamping the market and killing competition. I'm sorry you have a problem with choice being offered to ALL users of the web. Don't like it? Get yourself something else, now that's choice!! I want choice too, and that's no more flash!!

    THIS JUST IN....... Internet Explorer is adding support for HTML5 and javascripting. Read here> http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=8271

    my thoughts exactly. my macbook is horribly slow at everything that has do do with anything that isn't local to the hard drive. point in case: my ipod touch both loads web pages and streams you tube videos faster than this 1000$ macbook.

    There's plenty of HTML5 content? In your words...."Ummm WRONG". Yeah, everyone knows that YouTube and possibly Hulu are working on it which is out of necessity because their entire business is dependent on Flash right now.

    As for the rest of the roughly 30% of all websites that use Flash.....care to speculate on how many of those 10's of millions of websites have converted to HTML5? When will they spend the time and money to port everything over? The most popular browser in the world doesn't even fully support it yet, so my guess is several years at best.

    I don't really know how to "learn to live without it" on my iphone because some sites simply require it and are completely useless without it. I couldn't view a menu from a restaurant last weekend in my iPhone because the site was full Flash. Sucked for me (and I guess sucked for them because we didn't go there).

    Why doesn't the MMi full site work on the iPhone, no matter how many times you click on Normal Version, it still gives me the iPhone site and I hate that, is it because there's flash on MMi [/COLOR]
    On a jailbroken iPhone... Install UAFaker as an SBS toggle. You should be able to view all full websites as if your on a desktop.
