Internet & Networking Unless you've been under a rock, you're probably familiar with the fact that Flash doesn't run on any mobile Apple device. Moreover, it looks like Apple is never going to let Flash onto the iPhone/iPod/iPad empire. Rather than just whinge about the fact, the ad network company RevShock decided to do something about it by creating Smokescreen, an open source product that converts Flash to HTML5 & Javascript. While mainly designed for ads, and still very much in the testing stages, the demos certainly look very promising, and it ticks all the boxes for those who want everything to be open and free.

Slow as molasses in January on Firefox

I can literally count the frames when trying to play it on Firefox. Chromium/Chrome it is just like watching a flash movie. Wouldn't play at all in IE.

Interesting, but I like the idea of websites without flash at all.
