I saw that the nexus 7 comes with Chrome as default browser. Does it mean no more flash support?

Fairly sure Chrome supports, if not will support, flash?
If not then the new build of Firefox which is out supports flash

Chrome does not, and will not, support Flash.

I believe other browsers that support Flash should be fine though (for now).

As long as Adobe supports Jelly Bean, Flash should still work normally in other browsers.

This got me curious, so I spent some time looking around the Nexus 7 webpage. It says that Flash IS supported, just not in Chrome. The note says that you can download Browser from Google Play. Presumably, other browsers with plugin support (Firefox 14) should be compatible as well.

It is. Though Jelly Bean isn't that big a jump OS wise, so it shouldn't have broken flash compatibility.

Chrome for android does not support flash and according to Adobe, it won't. Apparently you'll be able to download the usual default browser on the play store if you require flash, or an assortment of 3rd party browsers that support flash.

I'm not sure if anyone notice...

If you look at the Flash in Play Store, Adobe states that "Flash Player will not be supported in any Android version beyond 4.0.X"
