Adobe Flash is resource-hungry, unsafe, closed-source, and outdated. Flash should not be used for anything, especially not a major video streaming service. I like Crunchyroll overall, but I am disappointed by the presence of Adobe Flash.

They have an HTML5 player in beta for Premium+ members, and if you're in the United States, VRV.co, from the same parent company as Crunchyroll, uses HTML5 for web playback.

Came here to say the same thing.

Chromium Blog literally just published an article about this: So long, and thanks for all the Flash.

I wasn't aware there was an HTML5 player beta for Premium+ members. Thank you for sharing, I might have to consider upgrading. Since I don't have Flash on any system, I haven't been able to use Crunchyroll.

What everyone above is trying to say (but didn't actually come out and say) is that Adobe has officially announced that they are discontinuing Flash. It's past time to get the HTML5 player out of beta and in use site-wide. :-)
