Cloud Browse App: Get Firefox & Flash on the iPad!

by on May 14th, 2010

We know that Apple doesn’t like Flash. However, Flash is still a major part of the web at the moment. Unfortunately on the iPad won’t allow Flash. How to bypass this? An iPhone app called Cloud Browse. This clever app allows you to remotely control a full version of Firefox, enabling you to access websites that have Flash.

So that means streaming video websites such as Vimeo, Justin.tv, etc. I tested Cloud Browse on my iPhone and Justin.tv worked amazingly well. Vimeo, not so much as their HD quality streams are set on default. But other streaming TV sites worked great.

Here’s how it works:

How does Cloud Browse work?

Cloud Browse goes beyond the limitations of a mobile device because it doesn’t use a scaled down web browser.

Instead, a full desktop browser is running remotely and being streamed to the iPhone/iPod Touch. The remote browser have access to higher bandwidth, more memory and faster processor than that of any mobile device.

Worried about privacy or security? Because Cloud Browse runs the browsers on a remote machine and not on your iPhone, there is no need to worry about websites grabbing your private information or leaving a trail of your browsing history.

So if you’re looking for a slight band-aid solution to accessing your favourite Flash sites on your iPad, Cloud Browse could be the answer you’ve been waiting for. Click here to download it.

    This was never really a “review” but more of a post informing people to try out this app. As always, the best review is when users research and try it out for themselves. ;)
