    I have noticed that one of the last bastions of my everyday use of Flash Player - Facebook videos - has now swithced to HTML5. I'm this close to uninstalling Flash Player and never looking back.
    How do you fare? Still need Flash for websites you routinely visit?

    Maybe they're rolling it out gradually. I know it used Flash until recently for me but I have now tested it with many videos on Facebook, all work (got Flash disabled in Safari settings).

    Thanks for spotting this! I will give it a try in a few days too - possibly an on-going roll-out as YouTube did. One more nail to Flash's coffin, thank God!

    Strangely enough, it has now reverted back to Flash for me. They may be rolling out HTML5, but it seems slow and gradual and even non-permanent for now. Guess we have to wait some more.
