LWN.net Weekly Edition for June 13, 2013
A report from pgCon 2013

The 'Pepper' version of Flash is vastly superior and is up-to-date.

Gnash, Lightspark, and Shumway

(Note: Pepper Flash works perfectly well with Chromium, too, so you can have your free cake with your non-free PPAPI plugin if you want it.)

Except there is no *legal* way to get the pepper Flash plugin without installing Chrome, which makes it sort of irrelevant that you don't need Chrome to run it...
