   "Initially, the Flash Player plug-in was not bundled with popular web
    browsers and users had to visit Macromedia website to download it,
    but as of year 2000, the Flash Player was already being distributed
    with all AOL, Netscape and Internet Explorer browsers. Two years
    later it shipped with all releases of Windows XP." -- Wikipedia


Besides, Flash is one of the few successful plugins.  Many others that 
have failed.
