Hello. I'm looking for ways to get rid of flash with extensions. Because really when I disabling plugins safari goes super fast in scrolling in everything. But I can't load videos without flash on Facebook. Any ideas?

Install ClickToFlash (http://hoyois.github.com/safariextensions/clicktoplugin/) (for Safari) to control which Flash content plays on websites. You can then selectively click to play specific flash content or even whitelist a site like Facebook, so all Flash plays on that site.

Thanks. I know that extension. But what I really want is to have disabled flash plugins. But when I do that in Facebook says me to install flash.

It's really very strange for me a site like Facebook using flash for videos. Why?

You can't play Flash content on Facebook in Safari without either enabling flash or some extension. If you want to do that, use Chrome, which has a built-in Flash component.

Why do you find it strange? Millions of sites use Flash to display video content, despite it being less efficient technology. Why should Facebook be any different?

I know that. I have installed YouTube5 also the extension on the link you showed me. But with flash disabled it doesn't work. Needs flash enabled.
