Installing Chrome eliminates the need to separately install the somewhat outdate version of the Adobe Flash Player Plug-in. AFAIK the current version of flash for ???doze or Mac is 17.0  but the Linux version is stuck 11.2. The problem with iView is that it currently requires version 11.7 or later. Installing Chrome seems to solve the problem for Linux users.

On my debian system: 

# sudo update-flashplugin-nonfree --install --verbose
options :  --install --verbose 
temporary directory: /tmp/flashplugin-nonfree.x5oJvokjZr
importing public key ...
selected action = --install
installed version =
upstream version =
upstream version is already installed

Appears that Adbobe are still maintaining 11.2.xxx for Linux, but there is no new features
or advances beyond tha
