    Ok , so your saying its a website issue then and the sites have updated their code for android but not WP?
    That makes more sense than anything since WP has always been the redheaded stepchild.
    No. Lol on IOS I purchased a special browser that supports flash. An appp if you will. But IOS doesn't support flash either. Try Safari see for yourself. I don't know about Android. Lol. perhaps is different there. Maybe Android users can elaborate.

    Checked my razr maxx which is around two and a half years old comes with adobe flash 10.3 installed. I'm sure my HTC ONE had it also, but can't check as I no longer have it.
    So I guess my old maxx does better in that regard than my flagship icon? WTF?

    Some android OEMs put flash capability in native android browser. Eg. HTC One 2013 but that support was removed in subsequent updates. Google chrome doesn't support it, me thinks.

    Sadly, WP has the worst browser of all major platforms. Even as bad as Blackberry was, years ago, they pulled way ahead of WP in the browser department. I'd actually argue they offer the best browser experience now. Of course Safari and Android's offerings are all great, too. I'm a big WP fan, but they are way behind in browsing.

    I'm sorry, but we can't help you there. I've tried everything I know of on WP, and even a few things I didn't know. Nothing worked! First, you'll have to talk to Microsoft about allowing browsers on WP besides IE or IE wrappers. Then, talk to Firefox and/or Dolphin about developing an app for WP. Then, the WP OS might have to be opened to allow flash, IDK.

    Google chrome doesn't support it, me thinks.
    You thinks correctly. Chrome on Android most certainly doesn't support flash. I use Dolphin Browser (for flash content). It actually works quite well.

    It's about the standards on which mobile web browser's rendering engines are based. Both Safari and Chrome are based on WebKit which Microsoft calls Non standard. Since chrome and safari(android and ios) commands most traffic share from mobiles, all mobile web developers target their standard which leaves mobile IE engine eating dust.
    As for flash, it is dead. Apple, google and Microsoft all agree on its vulnerability and none of them OFFICIALLY supports it on mobile versions of their browsers. It's the only thing they ALL agree on. Now it's up to developers to convert their flash content into html5 which is the new standard(at least for mobile).
    In the meantime, you can search for html5 enabled websites for whatever it is that you are looking for. They will work fine on IE.

    I supported Flash on WP...but in 2011, 2012 and 2013... At this point, especially given the prevalence of catch-up TV apps for cable network channels, the need isn't really there anymore. And if you're not into legit video streaming, then look around, a lot of the methods network is on HTML5 ;)
