it sounds like the person writing this article has never actually USED flash on a mobile device.


That's been my main feeling with a huge amount of the talk I've heard in light of this announcement. To be fair, flash on android had a pretty rocky start. And I feel like that's what a lot of people are basing their opinion on. Either using it once and uninstalling, or just having read reviews of those first beta releases.

But a couple versions down the line and it was a surprisingly good experience. I've actually played a fair amount of flash based web games on my phone, and the performance has been great. Anecdotal evidence and all, but I've found it to be a really useful addition to the mobile browsing experience.
