Google A few days ago, Google opened up a YouTube area on its product ideas website, so that people could submit their ideas about how to improve the ubiquitous video website. It turned out it was a bit of a can of worms Google opened there: everything focussed on HTML5 video support.

get rid of the abomination called Flash

At least for YouTube, a Flash-less version is already possible. Install Greasemonkey (if you use FF) and then this script: http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/50771
It causes YouTube to embed the native MP4 files without Flash. You need either an MP4-compatible plugin installed or a browser that can play MP4 files using the <video> tag (AFAIK currently only Chrome and Safari, but I have no idea if those support user scripts).
