Default Enough is ENOUGH: It's time to flush Flash back to where it came from Hell

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2015/02...ugh_is_enough/

I've enabled click to play for firefox.......

Also set the youtube bookmark to redirect to https://www.youtube.com/html5 so that I would be forced to enable the HMTL 5 player whenever I want to view a video. How many of you have actually removed the flash player (just curious) from your PCs?

I have been using click to play since a long time... since it was introduced, for flash player. I am keeping flash player on my system. I would love to see it gone though.

Same here, at least youtube offers HTML 5...Sadly sites like the BBC use flash.

IMO, Flash is a real security issue but it is not much of a risk for me. Like most of these concerns it is actually browsing habits that remain the greatest opening for malicious attacks rather than any one underlying technology and its vulnerabilities.
