    I mean yes it is nice for those websites that do not have a moblie version but they are few and far between. I just really fail to see any "want" for Flash on my phone. As a mater of fact I go out of the way to block Flash on my laptop so I do not get all the stupid animated ads.

    What exactly am I missing out on?

    Why, those stupid animated ads!!!! :D

    Flash is absolutely necessary for certain web sites. Say I want to go check the schedule at MLB Extra Innings. I can't even move the schedule without flash.

    Different animations, all kinds of stuff. If you don't have it many web sites will tell you to go install it.

    Ya. I agree. Everyone wants it. The only time I would ever use it is if I happen to want live tv

    It's nice to know it's available for when I do need it. Like everything else with the Droid it's nice to have the option.

    It is a great tool. My wifes website uses flash on the opening page. A lot of times she has to use her phone to show the webpage off when she is not near a computer. It is simple flash but it makes the site start off good. People just love extras and flair on the web.

    Because the iPhone doesn't have it. Honestly, that's the only reason I care.
