Adobe's Flash plugin for Google Android, support gives people fuller access to more of the web, but in all of the plugins, the Flash has been one of the weakest, most embarrassing spots for the Galaxy Tab, severely depleting the device's performance,when it comes to user experience, a crappy version of Flash is not better than no Flash at all.
Here are some reviews of the Flash plugin:
"The browser is miserable, at least when Flash is enabled."
"Because the Galaxy runs Android 2.2, it can also play Flash videos online."
"Sometimes they played and sometimes they didn’t. In all cases, they slowed the browser down."
"The Tab's Flash capability is a nice fallback, but if you've been thinking it's the killer tablet app you should think again."
