Stop Flash from automatically loading with ClickToFlash
I love the web, I hate Flash. It’s a slow bloated resource hog that makes browsing the web painful, loud, and obnoxious. Really the only time I actually want to use it is on video sharing sites like YouTube, when using Flash is MY choice and not some obnoxious web advertisers with a “Congratulations… blah blah blah” talking Flash ad. Ok now that my rant is over, you can stop Flash from automatically loading by using an awesome Safari add-on called ClickToFlash, which allows you to only load Flash when you want to by clicking on a marked and disabled Flash region and manually enabling it yourself! Genius! Somehow I had never heard of ClickToFlash before, but one of our brilliant readers suggested using it and I am so glad that I did. So, are you sick of Flash getting in the way of your web experience? Download QuickToFlash now and save yourself, and thanks again to Adam Pieniazek for the tip!
