    Is there another plugin to replace Adobe Flash Player ?

    Some sites will not function properly without Flash. For Flash-related issues:
    • Find your Flash version and make sure it's the latest version available. Never install or update Flash from a pop-up on a website. Always go to Adobe's site to get Flash or updates.
    • Install ClickToFlash (Safari), Flashblock (Firefox) or FlashBlock (Chrome) to control which Flash content plays on websites.
    • Try using the YouTube HTML5 Video Player to watch YouTube videos, when available. (May impact fullscreen viewing. See link for details.) Some have reported better performance with HTML5, while some have reported worse. Try it and find out what works best for you.

    For what reason do you want to replace Flash Player? Nothing is going to get you all the functionality of the current Adobe version.

    You can try uninstalling it if you don't want it. I've got it uninstalled on my MBP, and if I come across a site that requires it, I open up Chrome. It has a built in (i believe) Flash Plugin that wont require you to have flash "installed" on your system separately.

    Thanks for this, did not realise Chrome had it built in.
