Unfortunately only with Firefox, and it's far from perfect.
I tried to get Flash9 working the past few days with the
latest RELENG_7 and the latest ports. This is on a UP
i386 machine, so nothing special.
- Native Opera: No go. It segfaults.
- Linux Opera: Works somewhat, but hangs often, leaves
lots of dead processes behind. Generally unusable.
- Native Firefox3: Works most of the time. Problems
with youtube (hangs quite often). Most other sites
seem to work better.
- Linux Firefox: Didn't try because the port is marked
"forbidden" due to security issues.
I definitely prefer Opera for normal browsing because it's
faster and has more useful features, so I use it most of
the time. I only start up Firefox when I need to visit
a site that requires Flash, which doesn't happen too
Certainly, I wouldn't mind if someone improved the existing
nspluginwrapper to work better with native Opera, or write
a new software from scratch that enables using Flash with
native Opera. I might even add to the Bounty, although I
can't really afford more than a two-digit figure. But then
again, if a sufficiently large number of people added a
small amount to the bounty, it might become attractive
enough for a developer to look at it.
