You say Adobe sees no future in Flash?

Do you mean for Linux or for MS-Windows and Mac OS too?

There is an overabundance of web sites that overuse Flash, and in cases where
there is a Flash version and non-Flash version, the non-Flash version always
works better.  I have never seen a case where a Flash version worked better
that a non-Flash version.

What would replace Flash?  WOuld it be HTML 5?

Gnash worked well for me on YouTube but almost nowhere else.

I looked for emscripten in FreeBSD ports, didn't find, but found something
via Google.
