if you can manage without flash, that the best option. if i hit a site that needs i just apt-get it, and then remove it afterwards.

if 99% of web browsers report that then have flash installed, then web developers will use it. if a people that did not like flash uninstalled, it the web would have less flash.

for youtube i use totem, but miro or elisa also work.

(if you have flash block, you browser still reports to the site that flash is installed)

You can use Firefox 3's new plugin manager to disable Flash without restarting Firefox. To do so, click Tools > Add-ons > Plugins > [plugin name] > Disable. After you do that, does Firefox still report to webmasters that Flash is installed? (I'm currently on a shared PC running Firefox 2, and I don't want to disturb anything, so I don't want to check.)
