I believe Shumway (and so HTML5) is the solution too. Because it will not be restricted to chromium-type of browser but available to all on Github. So other browsers will be able to make use of it.

i would expect ARM based systems to become more and more common and if content providers want to support that hardware they can't use flash so that should help make them move away from it
unless you have a fairly power system flash is horrible, it is a little more forgiving on windows than linux/osx
Another thing is Chrome has h264 decoding built in while firefox requires installing gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg.The package is removed from Trusty so before Firefox 30 you can't even watch html5 videos (most use h264) on Trusty with FF unless you install the missing package from ppa. Since h264 has gone open source lately I think Mozilla will catch up eventually.
I don't really think pepper flash is such a big deal as 99% of sites don't require flash 13 and pepper flash would not work on drm streams (while system flash + hal or pipelight flash would, both options not available for Chrome) I in general prefer Firefox (and FF29 is faster than Chrome. ) But unfortunately at this point Chrome is actually a better choice for html5 videos than Firefox if cpu usage is a concern.
Edited: Youtube 1080p only plays in html5 on Chrome and IE11,--may work on Chromium as well,-- there is a ticket on Mozilla's bug list to implement this feature, someone is working on it apparently.
