Enabling Flash on Google Chrom (OSX)

The current release of Google Chrom For Mac has support for Flash, but you need to enable it with the --enable-plugins command line switch.

Here's how to make it persistent (well, until the next update):
[17:31] ~ $cd /Applications/Google\ Chrome.app/Contents/MacOS/
[17:32] MacOS $sudo mv Google\ Chrome _chrome
[17:32] MacOS $sudo gvim Google\ Chrome
[17:33] MacOS $sudo chmod +x Google\ Chrome

And the content of the new Google Chrome is:

"/Applications/Google Chrome.app/Contents/MacOS/_chrome" --enable-plugins $*

Happy surfing ...

Forgot $*

Aye, fixed.

However since only open it by clicking on it (or rather using QuickSilver), it didn't matter that much.
