Are there really any other good uses for it? ;)
Casual games on the Web. Very popular. My kid divides his game time pretty evenly between those, and Wii. Every TV series for youngsters seems to have Flash games on their web site. Interestingly, some involve a "game builder" where the user can construct game fields from components, then test play and share them. So not they are not always totally mindlessly passivating.
Must check how well Shumway and other free alternatives deal with these nowadays. I did try some Gnash version on the one of the simpler ones years ago, and the result was garbage.
