how to disable flash in safari

hi,

is there a easy way to switch off flash in safari? ideally i want to switch off safari on a case by case basis. meaning it's off most of the time. but when i think i need it for a special site i want to easily switch it on without any installation.

i want this mainly because i don't like flash and it slows everything down.

andi

The only way I know of is to go into Preferences and uncheck 'Enable plug-ins' Hope that helps!

Is there a 2010 solution to this? I did just try to uncheck 'enable plugins' in safari prefs... hope that's not over kill.
