Seeing as Adobe have said they will stop supporting and releasing flash for Linux are there any alternatives? places like Twitch require flash in order to watch the streams, wouldn't mind getting rid of the buggy and security hole POS from Adobe anyway :p

They never said they'll stop supporting it, in fact they explicitly announced support for an additional few years. New releases of 11.2 and 10.3 are being made on like a monthly basis. It's purely security fixes, no feature additions, but it's there. So if there's flash content you're interested in, stick with adobe flash. You can try out Lightspark as an alternative, but there's no guarantee it'll work on any random site.
