I use firefox for general browsing and paste the URL into Chrome for the remainder of sites that need flash (or choke Firefox's HTML5 video implementation)

Bottom line, Flash is still an attack vector but at least I know I'm conciously invoking it each time rather than relying on the vagaries of a blocker or click-to-play.

Has Uber been involved in a traffic accident resulting in injury of death?

What is the legal precedent here - can Australians sue a billion dollar US corporation for damages? Their whole business model goes down the toilet if the driver is inadequately insured and unable to pay.

Fuck any EULA on the app, if I were to become paralysed I'd want a 7 figure payout.

iOS has a store. Android has a store. Unsurprisingly, Firefox OS has a store.

What they're doing is extending same said store to the desktop, so that you can run the apps from your phone on your PC.

Quite handy if you're in the minority (myself included) that are blessed with a Firefox OS handset!
