Flash - I went the way Lex Friedman did
Some time ago I read Lex Friedman’s post that he rejected John Gruber’s advice to fully delete Flash from the Mac.
I did the same what Lex Friedman did.
After John Gruber published his post post how to delete Flash from the Macs I was thinking to do the same thing.
Flash was too annoying, using too much resources, and I had some Safari crashes produced by the Flash plugin. So I had enough reasons to delete Flash from my Mac. So I did it.
But after some time I recognized that using Google Chrome as a workaround for visiting Flash-based web sites wasn’t the best solution. Do you know Google Chrome? Under Mac OS X, it uses too much resources (that also means that I sometimes really needed Flash). You already read somewhere about the same effect, didn’t you?
I made a fresh install of Mac OS X because I had some troubles with kernel oopses. And Flash was there again with the blinking and annoying web ads. What to do? Should I “uninstall” Flash again?
No, I installed the ClickToFlash plugin for Safari Gruber was talking about in the same post I mentioned above.
I’m very glad that I installed this plugin. I “load” the Flash plugin on web sites when I want to.
And what is the best? NetNewsWire can also use this plugin. Read why.
UPDATE: Reeder uses ClickToFlash, too.
