Ditching Flash for HTML5

As Flash has a horrible reputation and is known for numerous security breaches, I'd like to know when Duolingo is going to ditch it in favor of HTML5?

Where is flash still used? I'm on Firefox/Windows without Flash installed at all the the courses work fine, including audio.

And according to the Help section in English, it's already not using Flash anymore under Chrome too.

I've had trouble in the past with the IVONA TTSes not working if I don't use Adobe Flash. You've got me curious now. *goes to check...*

Edit: Hmmm I guess it was a browser thing rather than a Flash thing. :P
