I'll be looking at the the version 6 chromium-browser when it shows

I understand that it's to be integrated into the browser. (Well, the
Google version, anyway.) I wonder how that's going to work.

Ah! That makes more sense. I was kind of feeling dirty for a little bit
there, wondering just who the GNU/Linux developers might be crawling
into bed with!
I wouldn't mind seeing flash go away -- perhaps to be replaced by HTML5
(and moonlight?). Flash has been mostly a pain to me for years --
especially when my wife was still using Windows. I'm delighted to have
an Open Source solution for playing flash -- even if it doesn't exactly
work perfectly. At least with Debian package management I don't have to
worry about traces of old, insecure versions of the player hanging on in
the system even after I've supposedly "updated" it.
Thanks for correcting my misapprehension about the future of flash
implementation in chromium-browser.
