       I'm actually surprised that our Manjaro Team doesn't adopt Midori browser since it's much lighter on resources and doesn't require separate installation of Flash.

Midori-(Webkit) seems easier & better for newbs/newbies.

Kind Regards from a log time Linux user.

For flash I have been installing the "chromium-pepper-flash-standalone" package...it's only about 16Mb. For Palemoon/Firefox I use "freshplayerplugin".


Best regards.

i have not had the best of luck with some drm sites so i have been using pipelight for flash.  it also includes activex silverlight shockwave widevine and some others if you wish to use them.  They are window pligins using a special adaption of wine to run the latest windows plugins.  my health care provider requires silverlight to sign in to their website so it make the most sense for me to use pipelight.  theres a tutorial here on manjaro board to install it.  takes 5-10 minutes tops.
