A flat brush is, as the name would suggest, one where the bristles
are arranged so the brush is quite wide but not very thick.
The length of the bristles can vary, with some flat brushes having long
and some very short bristles. (The latter is also called a square brush.)
When buying a flat brush, look for one where the bristles have a spring to them,
or snap back when you bend them gently.

This is NOT a good idea unless it is version 9 or above. It is unsafe especially if it is not the very latest. (version 10)
It is appreciably slower than the modern equivalents, and it does not handle the very latest technology (as used on this site) very well.
