    Why doesn't Mozilla Firefox support PPAPI (Pepper)?

    I haven't read the entire thread but has anyone had any issues with the new PPAPI? I keep getting issues with it where videos will run faster then usual for a few seconds and sometimes the video and audio will stutter whereby they play in a loop several times before continuing as normal.

    I suppose this is a chrome only thing or is/will it be possible to take advantage of this with chromium?

    I am pretty sure this was a mistake in the post, because Chromium is the Dev OpenSource only version of the stable Google Chrome, and since the PPAPI isn't OpenSource, it is very unlikely that we will find flash directly on Chromium. So for now we have to just stay with the old version available in the repositories.

    Chrome began lightweight but has turned into bloatware. My current Chrome install is about 107MB while Firefox 42MB. Firefox also starts faster while it was the opposite when Chrome first appeared.

    PPAPI is very much open source (the code is BSD licenced) and Chromium supports the API the same way as Chrome. Flash is closed source so it obviously isn't going to be shipped with Chromium by default. However it's quite easy to install the Flash player included in Chrome to Chromium. I'm personally running Chromium 20.0.1132.43 with Flash player 11.3.31.208 (PPAPI).
