Actually I have been trialling nothing for about a year now, and on balance find it to be my preferred swf player. The only feature I really miss is an h264 decoder, which sometimes tempts me to use other browsers. So while I thoroughly approve of Shumway, I can't bring myself to install it and thereby lose my nothing.

Using that together with Shumway will hopefully enable even a number of video sites to work that do not (yet) serve HTML5 video.

Hmm. I use Flash on Android with "tap to enable". I find that gives all the benefits of "nothing", while still allowing you to access the occasional piece of content you still can't access any other way.
