I find that assumption grossly inaccurate. I have experienced
difficulties numerous times trying to access financial institutions
without a working flash plug-in. I just had another bad experience with

The lack of an easy to install and maintain flash program is one of the
main reasons I maintain a WinXP machine. Not the only reason perhaps,
but nevertheless an important one.
