    I am currently surfing the web with a browser running the click to flash blocker which stops any Flash content from loading or running. Have been using it for three years and don’t miss flash one tiny bit. My browser loads pages quickly and has NEVER crashed. Flash could NEVER be called an essential part of the web and Mark Docherty is simply talking up his job.

    “Doherty said he believes the pressure will build on Apple and force it ultimately to support Flash on the iPhone.”
    Doherty is mistaken.
    Why will pressure build – Adobe has just demo’d Flash on Android!
    If you want a smartphone with Flash buy an Android phone, simple.
    No pressure on anybody.

    I do want to play Dofus on the iPhone. or the iPad. the facts about gaming and flash are there. you may argue about stability and the typicall “it’s only gaming”… but the safari still crashes in the iphone even without Flash way too often, and i’d say “it’s gaming… no less!”
    anyway, enough ranting, back to jobhunting ;-)

    I also use some add ons in Firefox which block Flash contents. You have to click on the Flash contents to activate them. I haven’t done that in years. I don’t think I am not missing anything significant.

    I absolutely disagree with Master G.

      I cannot imagine my life without ad-blockers but I do not ban Flash globally. Why? How you can say you don’t miss anything. If you ban all Flash content, you cannot see the video in this article so = you can definitely miss something.
