    How did you pull this one off? And can I see a game on somthing like AddictingGames being played because with YouTube being owned by Google they may ahve made a bit of compatibility there.

    Programming is 10% science, 25% ingenuity and 65% getting the ingenuity to work with the science.

    I entered the following commands in a terminal a few days ago:

    Code:
    cd /usr/lib/chromium-browser/plugins
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/flashplugin-alternative.so
    Until today's update, only sound was working, but now sound and video are working.

    The only thing that saddens me, though, is that Pandora doesn't seem to want to load all the way.

    Am I the only person who doesn't care about Google Chrome? I like Google but Chrome just feels too lightweight compared with Firefox.

    I think this browser has a lot of potential. Just give it some time.

    Please note that using the command:

    Code:
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/flashplugin.so
    should also work instead of

    Code:
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/flashplugin-alternative.so
    For some reason, on my computer, the only thing in the Firefox plugins folder was flashplugin-alternative.so.
