Well, the Flash supporters got another boost today, with Opera and Flash announcing that the next version of Opera (5.1) will include an embedded Flash plugin.

Er, will the minimal non-Java download become a non-Java, non-Flash, or do I have to start downloading and installing yet another copy of Flash on my system?

I'm using Opera 5 and it supports flash fine, i'm pretty sure 4 did aswell. Doesnt it use netscape's plugins, if you dont have netscape & flash (or it cant find it) then maybe thats why it doesnt seem to have flash.

I guess this means they wont have to rely on netscape plugins any more.

edit: duh! sorry this post is pretty redundant :)

I think it is embedded in the install this time Gmiller. They say it is about 350k total. The current minimal size is 2,339,904.
