It'd be AWESOME to see Flash gone from the Web but I don't like that it might be dead totally, how will for instance to play those games I've got as local SWFs?..

I know, but Mozilla is supposedly going to kill NPAPI this year or next year, and NPAPI is currently its only means of plugin support... and Flash is a plugin...

Guess what's going to happen soon if Mozilla is interested to copying Chrome :(
