[Bug 1568984] Re: Reconsider section about the Flash plug-in


Hi Gunnar, the Adobe page (link below) says that (under Linux) Chromium
and Chrome have the latest version of Flash (currently, so
presumably that means that when a user installs Chromium or Chrome
he/she immediately has the latest version of Flash. So that leaves
potential problems with Firefox. Could we just say "If you're using
Firefox and you're viewing a website that won't display correctly
without the latest version of Flash, switch temporarily to Chromium"?
Flash is being used less and less by websites so not having the latest
version of Flash is becoming less and less of an inconvenience.

  Reconsider section about the Flash plug-in

Status in ubuntu-docs package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Since Adobe is no longer maintaining the Flash plug-in for Linux
  (other than security updates), we probably should reconsider this
  section in the docs. Not sure how.
