    Better question What don't I own, Oh a generic APAD
    While Android is a Linux built on Java. You cannot think of your Tablet like a PC. You cannot go to a site that does not support Android or unless they offer a special app for Android. That is why YouTube, and apps like Hulu work. You can use their App to view the site. But why you cannot play some games on Facebook or Pogo or many other Java/Javascript based sites.

    Sorry

    Agreed. Java is not supported by Android, so Pogo.com games do not work.

    If they are flash based, you can use them. I play youtube videos in a browser with flash as I prefer this to the YouTube app. Many Facebook games will load with the flash in the browser, but they are too CPU intensive and are quite unplayable on a tablet.

    Also, M$ Silverlight is not supported on android, so you need the Netflix app to play Netflix.

    A workaround that can help you - if you have a PC you can use to remote into (using Splashtop, Remote Desktop Client or GoToMyPC) you can play the games on your computer from your tablet. Using a Bluetooth Mouse you can even get mouse support (but keep in mind the right click will be a back button, not a right click)

    You know reading this reminded me of how an IPad played/plays YouTube. It is a redirected emulator and is not rendered locally.
