Agreed, but Flash is getting worse.

The you won't be able to watch Youtube anymore. As the author of
the Youtube Flash Player add-on says (July 27):
"YouTube has made changes and it looks like it's no more possible
 to watch videos using Flash Player. So please stop sending me
 emails, there's nothing I can do, add-on is working as expected,
 it's just YouTube that forces the use of the HTML5 player."

But as said, there's more than Flash vids in the world (which you
may be able to download and then play with Irfanview), like very
useful interactive Flash-based applications.
