You can still get Flash for Android even though it is not available from the Play Store. Go this site and it will explain how to get it and install it it does not work on Chrome or Dolphin browsers but it does work with the standard Android browser supplied as default.

I stand corrected regarding Dolphin. Version 8.5.1 does handle flash and can be found via Google. However make sure that updates are not set to automatic or you will find yourself with later versions that cannot handle flash.

Firefox is the best I think.

At the present time I think Flash is worth having although it is slowly being phased out. I also have a Samsung Galaxy 10.1 (although I have the faster Note version) and have found that on a number of websites you need Flash to get the best of what is being illustrated. Your wife's device does support Flash despite what the notice says and if you follow the links on the website I gave you can download it and install it. After it is installed you should find that the stock browser will now show all the flash objects (at least mine does and as I also said Dolphin 8.5.1 does too; for me this is my preferred browser as it handles favourites so much better. Later versions of Dolphin do not support Flash, nor does the latest Chrome but I am not sure about Firefox. Maybe rdave13 can confirm if Flash is supported by Firefox for Android.
