Really, changing the way plugins work is a desperate necessity. It is still, after many years, not possible to close a browser window using ^W if your a Flash object has focus or even if your mouse cursor is hovering above it, because the plugin traps all keyevents. Now if that's not a ridiculous bug, what is? The last time I checked, this worked neither in Firefox nor in Chrome. The good news is that maybe this will change in the future. The bad news is that Chrome has implemented the new API for a while and AFAIK it still doesn't work in that browser.
