Interesting, but sites will know if they are still serving Flash content, since the browser will request and download those assets. That would be a more useful metric in my opinion, especially knowing that people can spoof whether or not the Flash Player is installed.
Not sure how it works, but if a site tests for flash, it doesn't see flash installed.

I think iOS is a big reason you're seeing a push to HTML5 video, especially with the success fo the iPad on top of the iPhone.
Since I went Flashless back in November, I've noticed a number of sites that used to not work at all (they'd check and put up a "Flash Required" page) that now work with YouTube5. Because of that, I think somebody's noticing something. It could also be related to iOS.

I haven't used my iPad to do much surfing--mainly I use it when traveling and don't want to bring my laptop. It's great for getting online (as long as I have cellular access!) and surfing, responding to emails, etc. I usually will bring my Apple Bluetooth keyboard along as well since I can type much more quickly on it than the on-screen keyboard. Good to know that sites are adopting to the iPad/iPhone and endorsing HTML5 video more.
One thing that I have found interesting is a number of sites used to require me to fake them out by sending the iPad User Agent String. Hardly have to do that anymore.
