"HTML5, which has become essential to browsing" are you kidding me?! Not only is it still in development, only the latest desktop browsers can support HTML5, you ignoramous! So unless you're some sort of iFail fan who believes that steve jobs says HTML5 is the future and a decent substitute for Adobe Flash (arguable, but still not applicable since it's not widespread!), you need to do some actual research before making such ridiculous and unfounded statements.

I think it was you who also didn't believe that dvd's are the future because it wasn't widespread ten years ago, and that vcr's will always be the standard. So what do you think of cloud services? It's not widespread yet, so I guess it won't be essential for new devices to have that capability yet huh.

By the time HTML becomes widespread, Nokia's browser will have have 2 or 3 updates. So yeah, it doesn't matter at this stage in the browsers development. Cloud services aren't widespread? What year are you living in? They are everywhere and have been for awhile. And anyone who ever used a DVD when they first came out, knew VCR's were doomed. Every single person.

I've found a lot of sites have changed their streaming video to HTML5 for a while. It's rare that I come upon a site that uses flash...not that it doesn't happen. But I think more and more sites are seeing the troubles that Adobe is having with Flash on mobile phones and going with what works for Flash enabled and disabled phones...
