I would say that it would be counterproductive to boycott free
addons for having "Flash" in the name.

Often their purpose would be to extract video sources
for playback *without* Flash, in which case they might be providing
a viable alternative to running proprietary software.
It might, however, be useful to determine if some of these are redundant,
given the HTML5-video-enabling extension in Icecat itself.

Best regards,
