Well, that's the end of flash for me. Just in time as I've gotten rid of all other proprietary software.

I have some subscriptions with sites that stream flash video (movies/sports), so I guess that means I'll need to eventually migrate from Firefox to Chrome (if Firefox doesn't adopt the new API). I haven't seen any recent slackbuild scripts for chrome (only chromium, which I don't think has built in flash). In a perfect world these sites would switch to HTML5.
