Question about Adobe flash IE and non IE

If you use IE exclusively i suppose you need the IE version but what if you use it sporadically and use Opera as your main browser?

Thank you

Flash Player for IE

It's not neccessary to install flash player for IE if you don't need to use it. I don't have it on my machine but I do keep the non-IE version installed for other browsers.

It depends on which version of Internet explorer your referring to,
ie10 is capable of playing most youtube videos without flash same goes for ie11,
So no you would necessarily need flash for a browser you don't use all of the time,
It = flash would be more of a pest to keep updated
