    I ditched Flash ages ago and just use Chrome for the now rare site that requires Flash. I figure it is just another exploitable way into your Mac, so why have it if you don't really need it.

    Ditched it in July after some high profile security issues came up. I've had about enough with Flash and in todays world you can more or less get around the internet without it. Worst case scenario, Chrome has a well updated version builtin for those *ahem* stupid *ahem* sites that haven't gotten with the Flash-free times.

    I ditched it when my new mac had no need for it. I don't miss it tbh.
