This is my reaction to The iPad provides the ultimate browsing experience? that appeared on the Flash Blog.
I’m not an Apple fan but I tend to disagree with that campaign of Flash support.
Clearly, this is another platform war. The Apple platform versus the Flash platform. It is very strategic for Apple to keep the attention of developers on the platforms and technologies they support. Supporting Flash means the opposite for Apple, so this is why they won’t allow it.
Flash is proprietary, bad for SEO, bad for the semantic web, bad for deep linking, bad for the customer, good only for lazy web developers.
I hate visiting websites entirely built on Flash.
The only thing Flash is still useful for is playing streamed MP4+H.264 video. Nothing else.
