Flash plugin has above 95% market penetration (I know it has versions
for all browsers), so plug-in can be a solution. And anti-phishing
plug-in can be much easier to develop. It should be distributed by
every OP and made as multiplatform as possible,

There's of course a problem with "plugin phishing"...
