So it looks like the new iPad, the one that apple claims is the “Best Way To Surf The Web”, does not support Flash. That means that any full-form web site that uses Flash for ANYTHING will not work correctly. This is not just games or animations, but all sorts of features that ubiquitous for normal web browsing:
-Flash ad rotators, and rich advertisements
-Flash audio players
-Flash video players
-Flash site navigation (menus, menu bars, etc).
-Flash image manipuations apps (3D rotate, zoom, crop, etc)
-Flash product demos
-Flash mini sites
-Flash landing pages
-Flash based catalogs and “Sunday” ads
-Flash photo viewers/manipulators
-Flash educational apps and games
-Flash games and animations (of course)
By the way , this most likely includes all other plug-ins like Silverlight, Unity, etc..
Technology-wise, Apple may have just taken the world a year or so into the future with an amazingly cool design. However, for web site development and Flash (and other) plug-in support, they have taken us 10 years into the past. You know, back when the bubble burst.
