∞ Flash slows down Web browsing on Android 2.2

I think I can safely say this is probably not what Adobe and Google wanted to see, but here it is. PocketNow posted a video of Android 2.2 “Froyo” browsing Flash-based Web sites and playing games. The results are less than stellar.

Flash elements lead to stuttering while scrolling and zooming on webpages with Flash content, and even resulted in a low memory warning requiring the tester to actively manage the currently open applications on the test device. Commenters on the PocketNow article report that users have the ability to load Flash elements only on demand, but that even so the browser experiences some increased lag compared to Flash-free browsing.
