There is a newly-released Yandex.Browser beta for Linux which is a Chromium derivative, but with some crucial differences like using Yandex account for syncronising, not Google's. It is now available as RPM file at . It is installable in both Ubuntu (as .deb) and Fedora (as .rpm). For Flash, it uses Pepper Flash plugin for Chromium. In Ubuntu repos it is called "pepperflashplugin-nonfree" and Yandex.Browser uses it. But in Fedora it can't use it and Flash don't work. But this plugin does exist in Fedora repos, but it's called "chromium-pepper-flash" and works in Fedora's Chromium.

Is there a way to "redirect" the package, so "pepperflashplugin-nonfree" can be recognized by Yandex.Browser and so it can use "chromium-pepper-flash"? Thanks!

I'm just curious about which Fedora repo are you talking about...

"chromium-pepper-flash" package is available at my PC via "@russianfedora-nonfree-updates" repo.

Yandex.browser's newer RPM version seems to successfully support Flash now.
