I've moved this over to the Site Support / Minor Questions forum.

CR is working on an on HTML 5 player, but I haven't seen anything recent indicating when it will be rolled out to everyone.

okay thank you for moving this I normally don't use forums so thank you for that I hope it gets really soon because I use Linux as my main operating system and Adobe stop supporting Linux with Adobe Flash so it is like a leaking colander for Linux users not as bad for window and Mac uses but it is still pretty terrible

You don't have to worry about Flash vulnerabilities, as all recent version of common browser block Flash's execution per website unless specifically permitted by the user. In order to catch something via Flash, you'd have to enable it on a site that distributes malicious code via its ads or other Flash content. We are obviously not doing anything like that.

Adobe is still pushing updates (this includes at least security fixes) for both versions of the Flash player plugin for Linux. I think I read somewhere that Google is in charge of updates for the Chrome Flash plugin, not sure if this is true although you do update Flash through/alongside Chrome. If you're still truly worried you could sandbox your browser: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Simple_sandbox.

Yeah I heard that awhile ago but they must've changed their minds. When did you hear that and from who? There are multiple places saying that all Flash support will end in 2020, which is still far away.
