Description

The website is full of advice about why Adobe flash plugin shouldnt be used with TorBrowser etc. Yet i see a bunch of tickets and development chatter about a "flash proxy". Nowhere on the site is it defined what a flash proxy is (e.g. in specs and proposals repository) or why flash might be kosher now. Would be nice to have a single entry that explains the discrepancy, so that user searches converge on one answer instead of fruitlessly clicking through dozens of confusing results. There is a definition at
https://crypto.stanford.edu/flashproxy/
which could be cited.

Well, flashproxy and Adobe Flash are completely different programs that serve completely different purposes. But it probably wouldn't hurt if flashproxy had its own project page similar to arm before it gets popular.

We just added it to the volunteer page.

That said, I have no idea where we would put this 'single entry' so it would serve your goal.

i guess it isnt an FAQ so this traclet and the vol page entry should do the trick
