Some, too many, web sites are difficult or impossible to access without Adobe Flash.
Adobe may discontinue Linux version of Flash plugin except when bundled with Chrome browser.
I personally would like to see HTML 5 wipe Adobe Flash off the face of the earth.
Some web sites use Flash just to be annoying, not to create a video.
freefilefillableforms.com : I was unable to proceed with income tax return for e-file.
shoplocal.com : When advertiser/vendor offers a choice between Flash (broadband) and HTML (dialup),
HTML (non-Flash) works better even on broadband.
www.gagels.com (farm market), last time I looked was maybe a month ago, and I remember complaining.
laguanajuatoky.com : crashes (Mozilla) Seamonkey browser when running in FreeBSD.
Gnash is great on YouTube but seems to work nowhere else.
