As far as I am concerned, the current 'best' is Adobe Flash 10.2.
OLPC has reservations about it because it is not "open source".
[It does require technical skill to install.]

Gnash (http://getgnash.org/yum/fedora/$releasever/updates/$basearch/),
which is "open source", is slowly improving - but IMHO falls short.

For me, flash 10.2 works equally well in Browse.activity, in Firefox, in
Opera, and in Midori.  I find Google's Chrome flash implementation has
similar performance to flash 10.2.  [On the XO-1.5, all of these
browsers display YouTube 240p clips acceptably (but still jerky).]
