A few months ago, Skyfire, a web browser with Flash support was released for the iPhone. This application allowed you to browse the web normally, but gave the user the ability to watch Flash video using HTML 5. It uses a backend server to convert the Flash video which the iPhone cannot view into HTML 5.

A version of Skyfire for the iPad will be released soon, as it was already submitted to the app store. We already know that it works pretty well, and ships with full social networking support (e.g Twitter and Facebook built-in). The actually Flash video that it supports is limited by the server, which I assume can be improved without needing to update the app.
