    I'm also interested to hear when this will happen, but I did want to point out one bit of information missing from the CNET article.  In the original Google blog post (linked within the article), Google explains that HTML5 will be preferred over flash, but websites that do not have an HTML5 capable option will still be able to run Flash, users will just need to tell the browser to allow the plugin to run. 

     

    I believe this will lead to user frustration if they have to enable the plugin every time the page is loaded so hopefully the HTML5 replacement is getting close.
