    Flash isn't officially supported on anything above Gingerbread, so any phone made this year (for the most part) which is 4.0+ won't let you install Flash from the play store, but some people have had luck sideloading it.

    Adobe reader is available.

    Depends, most of my web browsing is done on websites that don't use Flash.

I m trying to hold off rooting my s3 until I get the jelly bean upgrade but I don't know if it is worth it!
    Don't know why you'd hold off. Rooting literally takes less than a minute. No ADB bs or Terminal at all, just a simple one click program. Then download EZ Unlock, and there goes the locked bootloader problem. Flash CWR thru ROM Manager (or TWRP, your choice) and flash away. You can have a stable Jelly Bean build running on your phone in no time- I downloaded CleanROM 5.0 and love it- its a stable bloatless Touchwiz rom and gives great battery life.

    I'm just afraid of VZ or Sammy pushing thru an update that'll close all the loopholes the devs were able to exploit, which is why I rooted and flashed right away. Also, make sure you backup your IMEI before you start flashing, it will save you from a potential headache down the road! This is different than making a nandroid backup in recovery (you should do that too, though). Its very easy, follow the steps here:

    [HOWTO]Comprehensive IMEI/EFS Backup - xda-developers

    I used Terminal Emulator method once I was rooted.
