Also, Adobe can say whatever they want about their plans for Flash Player
plugins. The truth is Firefox has at one point stated, from one of their
VPs, that they would love to just not have a plugin architecture at all and
basically tell Flash to go F itself. Microsoft tried that with Metro and
they got some backlash so they put it back in 'desktop' mode. Then we have
the Chrome pepper API, wow, wht a mess. It gets buggier and buggier with
time. What does this all say to me?  Plugin architecture has its days
numbered. You can shove your head in the sand and choose to ignore the
writing on the wall or you can start to strategize for a life without Flash
Player plugin. I choose to be prepared. Whether HTML5 is ready or not and
whether its more efficient to develop in or not that is where the industry
is heading.
