I disagree, lately, none of the official Debian packages worked for me on either amd64 or powerpc.

I find that strange.  I'm currently using 0.8.1+cvs20080212.1133-1 on amd64
and works fine for my use case.  It doesn't support all the sites, but it
supports the big ones (e.g. youtube) and is much better than not supporting any

Please can you be more specific?

  - versions you have tried

All official versions (there has been a regression at some point, but unfortunately I can't say when it happened).

I have tried the version from unstable, but even on youtube I get one second of "loading" then a grey area where the payer would be. Maybe there are some persistent settings in $HOME?

Also, on an Etch powerpc system with gnash backported, it was working somewhere around 0.8.0, but lately it just continuously load.

  - unsupported websites you are missing


  - possible drawbacks that would make "flash-less" setup preferrable

Browser crashes, hangs, bad first impression of the F/OSS software?
