    Can somebody please recommend me a good Flash blocker for Safari?

    I've done a few searches and can't seem to find anything. The best I could find was ClickToFlash, but no matter what I do it refuses to install.

    Thanks guys :)

    Are you already running Safari 5? ClickToFlash IS a great flash blocker, but I installed it when running Safari 4 and it just kept working under Safari 5. Maybe there is an installer issue if you are already running Safari 5 and the developers need feedback to correct it.

    No I'm using Safari 4 - I can't upgrade to 5 because my data allowance is VERY limited, and I can't afford to download the installer. :eek:

    I've tried numerous times to install ClickToFlash but it simply never installs - I keep getting the same error: "The installer could not write the receipt". I've tried restarting and installing, using an admin account, the terminal commands they suggest on their site - I don't know why, but it just won't work. Which is why I'm asking for a good alternative.

    Maybe Flashless?

    It's odd CTF won't install for you. Were you trying the latest beta, or the latest stable release?

    In what way? Does it not work for you? Have you installed the plug in or the extension?

    Why don't you just uninstall flash if ClickToFlash ain't for you?
