flash is a proprietary feature, which doesn't run FreeBSD.

you may try to use linux browsers under emulation, you may use windows or 
do whatever else. using windows could be even better as most crappy sites 
are designed having only windows in mind and (w)internet explorer.

or - like me, you may simply don't use it.

i have a lot of choices about what bank to use, and the usability of web 
banking on MY (html/http compatible anyway) system was important. the bank 
i chose doesn't only run without flash and java, it just have best of all 
webservice, and have best bank offer anyway.

i do EVERYTHING through internet, being actually once in their office.

i think there is something similar in your country.

if others require flash7, java or other craps, they just don't want me to 
be their client.

same with every other sites. nothing wrong if they use flash to make some 
animation, but with site completely usable without this. if it's unusable 
- it means they don't like people like me to use/read that page. 
so i don't read and say "no thanks"

to tell you the truth - such site are usually not useful even without 
flash :)

so - while i've tested linux-opera port working with flash7, i just don't 
use it, and use native opera (and links-gui).
