Adobe Flash in Linux


Adobe Flash's days are numbered; HTML5 and CSS3 are the state of the art. These days, developers no longer implement classical Flash domains such as dynamic and interactive web pages or audio and video streams with Flash. For many users, however, a complete abandonment of Flash is not yet an option. Whether its use involves Flash-based browser games or various video portals, there is still enough for the Flash browser plugin to do. Linux users should use Chrome, Chromium, or Opera Developer as a web browser to avoid as many Flash-related problems as possible. This triumvirate can use Adobe's latest Pepper Flash. You have to make do with the Flash plugin's ancient NPAPI version in Firefox unless you are prepared to give the very fresh Pepper Flash wrapper, Fresh Player, a chance.
