Board » General Discussion » Closure of Puffin browser

I understand that the Puffin browser is closing from 1 July 2019.
Is there another browser available on IOS that can use Flash to enable us to use SOL after 1 July?

Dave (Mullionman)
Oh good grief... I wasn't aware of that... let's hope between us all we find a workable alternative!
Have found this informative webpage that mentions another browser:

how to get Flash on iPhone etc

Puffin on Android is continuing - it is being locked out by Apple that has it leaving iOS, apparently.
I suppose I will have to use Photon for now.
But Adobe say that Flash will finish in 2020. In that case SOL needs to change to a new format soon, because otherwise there will be no SOL.
Yes. The loss of support for Flash in Chrome would make it more difficult for SOLers to access Sailonline, so the matter is "in hand" :-)
Oh no!! I love Puffin. This is not good news!
Yip... seen the Chrome message as well... SOL will be more challenging in future for sure unless some of the brainy folk can come up with some magic.
I like to talk a lot... sometimes I even make sense, mostly not...
