    Supporting using multiple GTK+ library versions in one process would require more than just versioning of symbols. This is generally a hard problem, and doubly so when you have code which communicates with external resources to do its job (XServer). I mean, if you have both GTK+2 and GTK+3 in there, which one communicates to the XServer? 2, 3, both? If both, how is the responsibility divided?

    The world would be wonderful if Firefox/FlashPlugin could move from GTK to QT.
    Same has been said for Qt several years ago. Frankly, it is getting old, time to wise up.

    You must be trolling, there is tons of tons of tons of flash content in the internet and milliards of sites, that html5 doesnt support, and it will take at least 10 years for html5 to catch up with all the flash functionality, if html5 devs will not be so dumb and lazy as gnome's devs, not to mention, that html5 is still performing way worse than flash, and even youtube isnt fully supported, just some videos...

    Chrome 31 automatically switches to HTML5 for some youtube videos and my CPU fan starts making significantly more noise.
    That is Flash for now is the better option for HD content.

    Using a Nvidia card.
    Maybe HTML5 has Intel/AMD hw acceleration hence the Intel/AMD users might have a better experience.

    Steve Jobs was right: the flash devs are lazy.
    Not only didn't they bother making flash toolkit independent, but they don't even bother supporting newer toolkit versions.

    On the other hand, there's Google's PPAPI plugin api, which dilutes any type of arguing in favor or against flash's support of other toolkits.

    I don't know what to think. Firefox should be smarter and move to Qt5 which will support wayland.
