PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless And so, Flash on mobile is now completely dead. "There will be no certified implementations of Flash Player for Android 4.1. Beginning August 15th we will use the configuration settings in the Google Play Store to limit continued access to Flash Player updates to only those devices that have Flash Player already installed. Devices that do not have Flash Player already installed are increasingly likely to be incompatible with Flash Player and will no longer be able to install it from the Google Play Store after August 15th."

I don't get how I can run the LOTRO and WoW clients with absolutely no problems or hiccoughs, but anything with Flash soaks up all my CPU and RAM and turns my laptop into a jet engine with the fans roaring and oven-like heat. Flash is a pile of stinky tampons. It needs to die a fast and violent death.

Its (for the most part) replacement seems often even worse - desktop browser implementations of HTML5 video somehow manage to "soak up all CPU and RAM" even more than Flash videos.

And yet, hooking up mplayer inside the browser (so mplayer will be the ~plugin that plays videos) gives much smoother experience.
