Multimedia, AV On my mark... Get set... Start not caring! Adobe has announced it plans to discontinue the stand-alone Flash Player for Linux, instead focussing all its effort on the version available through the Pepper API - which, besides Chrome, no one else is going to support.

I hope that this helps push Mozilla to reconsider their decision to reject Pepper


Practical and ideological reasons prevent Mozilla from adopting Pepper. Practical because Pepper is underspecified and only exists as a code blob and allegedly is full of Webkitisms which make it hard to integrate into other code bases. Ideological because Mozilla would rather improve the web platform and not invest developer resources into what they consider technology of the past.
