Only as far as viewing videos, which is just one thing that Flash is
used for.  There's an *awful* lot of pages that use it for navigation
and other flashy things that doesn't have anything to do with watching a
movie.

And you'll still be stuck by all the sites that want to have control
over what you can do with their content (just about all of them with
content), that'll make life hard no matter what technology is used.
