Dang, that's a real shame. Kongregate was also where I found out about EBF in general, too. Kinda forgot about the Kong version after I got the Steam version, but seeing you mention Kong made all these old memories rush back.
For what it's worth, I find that Firefox allows you to run Flash content with no need for any extensions. While retaining Flash may or may not be beneficial for the web, keeping old versions around it should be fine on the grounds that most new content wouldn't use it, and that it's for archival purposes. Kinda like how Java applets should still be viewable imo if you can find em online...not too many hackers looking to target your system via applets after 10+ years of it being abandoned.
