I still can't believe they haven't released 64-bit flash yet. It's ridiculous

IMO people should just stop using flash and move on to HTML5. You can do everything flash does and some with HTML5. The only thing is you break IE compatibility since it doesn't support that, but google recently came out with some javascript code that makes HTML5 render correctly in IE.

I have full flash support on my e63 through the native browser and skyfire. You should have something similar on winmo, but any other phone won't be able to do it.

Yeah, that's right, any phone that can run Skyfire can have flash, which is almost every WM and Symbian device.

I actually in Nokia's browser the best to use, especially for online banking.

Adobe has a (beta?) flash player for 64-bit Linux out. I am using it on my Slackware64 install and it's working well.

Honestly I hate flash with a passion, it's really stupid that what is supposed to be platform independent by design (by that I mean the web in general) is very reliant on that crap because various websites insist on its use.

Not only that but anytime you pull up a webpage in over a VNC session that has a flash object in it, it instantly bogs your connection because of how flash objects are rendered.

AJAX and/or HTML5 ftw, can't wait til they eventually replace flash completely and it dies just like activex did.
