Flash is almost the only thing standing between the Internet and Open Source!
which is why i installed the FlashBlock add-on in FirefoX !!

it's amazing how many ridiculous ads you can block with simply that tool...

as for flash in general , well i think that it's days are numbered and sooner or later will fade away
