    "Photon is designed to support Flash. The fact that it isn't updated is actually a positive because modern browsers tend to not support Flash. And so it's great as a Flash browser."

    "Flash doesn't always play well with mobile devices. That was frustrating, to say the least. Then I tried out the Puffin browser. This thing is a game changer, often literally. This browser has no problem handling flash based games. The Puffin browser made it fun to play quick flash based games on my mobile device again. "

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that Google Chrome decided to block the flash player and started to use HTML 5 by default instead? Following the steps of Adobe, browser makers announced the end of flash. On a related note, Mozilla's detailed plan for the Flash player includes letting the Mozilla Firefox users decide on their own whether to run the Flash Player or not. But early this 2019, Mozilla will disable all its plug-in support on Android smartphones. Yet, this doesn't make them less of the best browsers for flash games.

Amidst the popularity of the best games with awesome graphics and immersive gameplay, flash games still found its footing in the gaming industry. This is why it's pretty ironic to think that the use of Adobe Flash Player has significantly decreased, yet the popularity of browser games is increasing. Same reason goes as to what looking for the best browsers for playing such games is still relevant even today. In choosing one, you need to realize that it is not all about the browser itself. You need to understand that there are other factors that affect its performance and speed. One of which is the hardware acceleration. Enabling the hardware acceleration forces the computer to avail its hardware to perform quicker than the usual pacing that it does through a software that will utilize the CPU. For instance Google Chrome--since Chrome has a default flash player since forever, it automatically accelerates the hardware when possible or when available, making it faster to load flash video or even flash games. Another factor is the flash quality. Little did people know that they can manually adjust the flash quality. If you prefer performance over graphics, or perhaps you just want to kill the time by playing without worrying about the graphics, you can do this trick. It will of course speed up and stabilize the game at the cost of reducing the quality of the game graphics. Again, it is not all about the browser but rather how you use it efficiently.

    "Was good at one time but it seems to have stopped working a while ago now. It crashes like clockwork no matter where you go. I would love to see them fix this but don't have high hopes for tech support doesn't even respond anymore. It's like they gave up."

    "Very fascinating, am willing to try it out. It's fast and private, it has rating it great ratings. But a few of the comments are a bit worrisome. One states the previous version works better, which is a plus for the app, at least one of it's versions is good. Another says the app stopped work not once. It would something I would try out and see, if it disappoints I would try the previous version and make my judgement from there."

    "To be fair, the reason why I am recommending google chrome as one of the best browsers for flash games is because it has a built-in flash since forever. It requires little resources so it makes the performance speed and stable. Thanks!"

    "In terms of fastness, I ain't recommend this but in terms of stability, I will. Adobe flash is so 2017 because it was replaced by html 5 but still if you are addicted to flash games, this is one good browser."
