    Default Do I need flash? Why?

    I'm just wondering what I need flash for? I can watch movies just fine on my N7 now, and YouTube videos. Is there another reason I might use it? Thanks

    I live without flash just fine. Some companies still use flash in their browsers like HTC to display sites using flash. In reality for mobile devices, it is not a necessity.

    Plenty of porn sights haven't upgraded to html5, some Japanese sights still use flash or maybe it's Chinese. But on a tablet you won't miss it.

    I wonder why it is that Puffin is so much faster than Chrome and Firefox.

    It seems that they are using their own servers to render the page faster. You should check your ip address when using puffin. I tried it and my ip is actually displaying the Puffin's server's ip.
