    Video in TF101 Browser vs iPad Browser

    So i know how Apple doesn't do Flash and with the TF101 you can choose to have it off or on. But obviously with it on, the browsing experience is a bit slower than with it off. I was fine with this when i thought that the non flash mode was the same as browsing on an iPad. However I was recently burning some time between classes when I decided to test the browsing speed of my transformer against the iPad2. So I turned off flash and went to ESPN. I expected to see the same thing pop up on both devices, however the iPad2 was able to play the video that was up at the top while the transformercould not. Why does the transformer need flash but the iPad2 doesn't?

    The video was probably HTML5, The latest Firefox for Android in the market played HTML5 videos / animations pretty well last time I checked, you should compare a few different browsers

    The Addon for Firefox that allows you to change the User-Agent and display the page as a Desktop would is called "Phony" you can install it from the preferences menu in FF
