With the grow of HTML5 and it adaption on popular web browser Flash content becoming more weak to be used, in so many article and news, debate about HTML5 can replace Flash was very hot news, but wheter you flash lover or hater maybe these day you still need flash content, like video streaming site, etc. But flash become annoying when you see an ad using flash so in my browsing experience I always blocking flash content, here what I do to all my installed web browser
Using 3rd party addons firefox can easily block flash content using available addons, it work on Windows, Mac and Linux the addons are FlashBlock and Flash Killer, my favourite one is the the first one the “FlashBlock“.
I’m testing it on the safari 5 for windows and it work fine, first you have to enable safari extension, if you haven’t it, follow this simple step, after that you have to download this extension (broken box), then just double click the file an it will installed easily, and it asked you to move watching youtube video in html5 format.
Like firefox and safari, google chrome used 3rd party software too, but in google chrome the addons is called extension, and I found much more choices extensions for blocking flash content, than firefox addons.
For Internet Explorer it very easy to disable flash content just go to manage addons and choose the Shockwave Flash Object, you can disable or setting site that allowed displaying flash content
