Or you may not. Most sites built with Flash these days are built for
version 9+. Gnash will not play these movies. In the future that may
change now that Adobe has opened up Flash a bit, but for now, only a
small number of sites will work properly with Gnash.

Proprietary or not, the current Adobe plugin is the only way to view the
newest Flash content.
