I turned off JS on my browsers for several years and avoided most popup/web issues that people had. Nowadays, I can leave it on because Firefox plus some plugins do a good job of blocking most of the crap and because it doesn't destabilize the browser like it once used to. So what's the deal with Flash? Occasionally, I will get a link on YouTube/Google Video that looks interesting, but for the most part, I've ignored them. Over the years, I have occasionally tried the mozilla flash plugin, but that has always crashed my browser within the first 10 minutes of use. So for those of you using FreeBSD 7, what is the current state of Flash? Can it be used regularly? Is it ready for the BSD desktop? Caveats? Comments? Advice? I see flash popping on this list over and over, and as yet I have not seen a solution that fully works. Yes I tried the wrappers, gnash etc. on native firefox and opera with limited success, however as others have also noted flash is now required, and as for myself, fully working flash 9 is also. Linux firefox with the linux flash did improve the situation for me a great amount up to flash 7, but then again.. trip on to a bit of flash 9 content and it is crash again.... I know this might not be the solution people might want, but for me at any rate it works, and works better than all the other flash solutions I have tried. After a long time of putting up with crashing browsers and lack of access to flash content I need, I am now using firefox / opera with flash for window$ under WINE, and the only thing I am thinking is, why did I not do this sooner...
