True, the mobile market like iOS puts pressure on proprietary (i.e. non-Appple :-)) runtimes, but not to the extent that every webmaster would phase out flash in a panic. So to be on topic, for a x64 browser it is and will be essential to have a working flash plugin.
Aside from "facebook games" I don't see flash anywhere anymore. It's no longer used as the primary building block of any website, and even YouTube doesn't require it anymore (http://youtube.com/html5). They haven't made any major changes in ActionScript since 2006. The only updates to Flash these days are security holes and video card incompatibilities.

I know, though Youtube Flash/h264 is superior to their html5-vp8/webm so I still use it on youtube. But as a user of noscript & flashblock/click to play I realize that I very often stumble across sites that use flash, but maybe that's just me.

But for really phasing out the flash plugin "few sites use it" is not enough, it has to be just like the java-plugin "99% of the sites use it anymore" or many people will want to keep flash installed - and using noscript/click to play there are no drive-by attacks possible.

Is anyone else with an Elantech touchpad (I am on a Samsung Series 9) having issues with the 3 finger swipe forward/back on version 18? I know it was an issue back on version 14, but I couldn't find any resolutions to the issue.

That's what I meant, though.

Why doesn't Firefox support it?

How do I youtube videos in html5 format? I've joined the html5 trial but when I play it in FF19 it still plays via Flash?

It does support h.264, it's just not in the release versions. They didn't add h.264 support initially because it didn't exist as a fully open-source project, and ogg is. Ogg was the natural choice.

Depends entirely on the video. Videos with ads and other various "features" of YouTube have not been html5'd yet. Also, the interfaces (and context menus) look almost identical, so double check that it is actually flash.
