Firefox wouldn’t start up, so I started it in safe mode (no addons) and manually enabled my plugins. I forgot about my flash+flashblock system (where I unblock individual objects temporarily). Fixed my problem, but when I went to view browser a browser statistics page, I was greeted with this pop-up. To put it into a succinct manner, the reasons I don’t like flash are as follows: binary blob, memory hog, closed standard, overused, can be used for tracking your browsing, security holes. I can’t wait for the move to HTML5, but unfortunately internet explorer is. Microsoft, holding the web back by almost a decade.
