(not VP8 though, my GPU doesn't have hardware decode for that)
Plus, the world has moved far ahead than my 2008 machine, so things may turn alright for Mozilla.
Mind you, if you are in Linux then Google Chrome is pretty much the only way to get properly working Flash.
What about the jerky videos in html5 using firefox and high cpu usage, no thoughts on that. W eunderstand that flash is the "evil", these days but provide a usable alternative. Html5 woks ok just with chrome as it is native H.264 encoded HTML5 video palyer, the mozilla implementation sucks and they do not offer anything in exchange.
AnonD-425519, 21 Jul 2016I work in 2 web design companies and we make HTML5 websites without a problem.
I don't believ... moreIn an age where smartphones are everywhere (and the vast majority of mobile browsers don't support flash) I honestly can't conceive any competent web-designer in 2016 even suggesting using that obsolete (non-mobile) technology.
The only ones I know that still are actively developing in Flash create on-line games. Even them are now dropping Flash for HTML5+JS and/or WebGL (depending on the kind of game).

As reference, most of those high-security smartcards have a Java-powered OS built into them.
On the other hand, Macromedia Flash (now Adobe) is (and always was) down to its core a security cancer, with plentiful of critical exploits (often times even reoccurring issues). That has to be dealt with, like it or not.
By the way, there are many (MANY) more ways to do menus and galleries than with Flash (and more battery efficient too).... and the ground work has already been done because of the mobile phones!
Long story short: it's 2016, try to keep-up with the times.

I don't believe Flash is used anymore in Canada, but I could be wrong.
It was nice indeed and smooth but so is HTML5 these days. It has gotten better.
Flash content do had some privacy and security issues that I heard of,that's why most of the piracy website that supply movies and videos from China still use it.
Well if you don't care about their free contents anyway~
I wonder when people realize that flash is not only videos and ad's, and still lots of sites use flash parts starting from menus ending on image browsers...
And html5 is not that great as people think. They assumed that flash is bad, because they think about heavy sites filled with flash content made by amateurs. Bad made site that use html5 will work almost the same, and its really resource demanding, just like flash.
Flash is just addition for more fancy parts of the site: if its made good, will work good. If its made bad, it will work bad. And sadly for past years we had annoying trend of kids making sites, so most of sites was not optimized at all. And this is real reason why flash is hated.
And security problems? Think about it like with java(that is used everywhere)
We hear lots of flash security problems, because its used in looots of places, and if something is used by people... someone will like to break it and use it to spread some shady programs. Because more people use it= bigger chance to infect pc.
You can compare it to mac/windows, where there is more security problems on Windows, because it used by more people and institutions, but for past years more and more people use macs... and we here that more and more security problems mac have, and all that because more people use it and there is bigger chance to infect this system.
So Flash is not perfect at all, but it also is not that bad as most of people like to think, its all depend on who make it and how. this world "optimization" is really forgotten today, because no one have time to spend time on their own work to fix basic problems and thinking how something should work.
