Hey,

So I want to get rid of Flash completely but right now FireFox doesn't fully support all the Youtube videos in HTML5 (some do but most go back to the Flash Player).

I also want to try out a different browser after being with FireFox for about 3-4 years now so what would you recommend?

Just a quick FYI though, soon I'll get my MacBook Pro (17 Inch + 128 SSD FTW) in the mail (less then a week I hope) and I will rarely use Windows from now on (just for gaming) so if the browser isn't available for Mac then there's no need to mentioning it (not being rude here)

Edit:

Oh and if possible I'd like to have some sort of plugin to still get Flash videos on non HTML5 supporting websites (yeah I see the irony behind this :P), but if not then to bad.

Google Chrome is good. Or you could try Chromium, which is what Google Chrome is based off of. You could also try RockMelt which is a Chromium-based browser that is tightly integrated with Facebook and Twitter. Since you're getting a Mac you could try out webkit-based Raven (raven.io). It's still in development, but seems to be working quite well. Not sure what it's capabilities are, but it's still pretty nice (one of my new favorite browsers).

You know that Chromium is a OS and not just a browser?

Yep. Hexxeh FTW!

You are both right. It was originally a standalone web-browser.

Chromium: started as an open source browser
Google Chrome: Google's rendition of Chromium (same engineers)

Google Chrome has its own built in version of Flash which is safer as its always updated!

I uninstalled Flash months ago and rely purely on Google Chrome... :)
